Look! Cynthia Nixon Aims To Improve Racial Justice By Legalizing Marijuana

Nixon says she was honored to receive the endorsement Saturday and "inspired by the enthusiasm of progressive working-class members of the party". In a recent video she posted, Nixon explained: "I believe it is time for NY to follow the lead of eight other states and D.C., and legalize recreational marijuana".

Cynthia Nixon wants to be New York's next governor.

Cuomo's backers denied he threatened members of the party, and several major unions dropped out of the party on Friday. When it comes to recreational marijuana, however, Cuomo calls it a gateway drug. There were also published reports that said the governor urged the unions to withdraw funding from community groups within the Working Families Party.

A lot of you have been asking about my position on marijuana. "This is a democracy".

Cynthia Nixon's campaign for governor continues with her latest video about why she supports legalizing the use of recreational marijuana in NY.

The designation means that if Nixon were to lose the Democratic primary for governor in September, she would still be on the statewide ballot in November. She has been openly critical of Cuomo, who she has characterized as a "centrist and Albany insider".

As governor, Cynthia would fight for a progressive agenda in NY by supporting policies to provide health care for all, legalize marijuana, and take corporate money out of politics.

"I am running for governor because we need a governor who will stand with the people of NY".

She announced her campaign in mid-March, running left of 2-term Governor Andrew Cuomo.
