Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes is 99% responsible for ruining the chances of marijuana being legalized for recreational purposed in NY.
Instead of getting on board, she decided to pull the race card only to give herself more time in the national spotlight, rather than help the black community.
Who is She?
Crystal Peoples-Stokes is an assemblywoman from New York State’s 141st Assembly district (Vote her out!).
It’s a sad era we live in when people are more concerned with vanity than doing what’s right. And when someone says they won’t vote to legalize marijuana unless they can personally dictate where half of all the revenue from it goes, shows this woman is clearly unfit for office.
The black community does deserve retribution for being unfairly targeted in some instances by police but people also need to take responsibility for how they act with the plant. And lumping two issues together isn’t always the best plan of action. African-Americans (just Americans would be better) has faced plenty of injustice but to connect it directly to marijuana is borderline ridiculous.
Part of using marijuana is taking personal responsibility for your actions. It’s about FREEDOM people. No other issue is tied to marijuana legalization but personal freedom for all, plain and simple.
Should she be reelected?
If you support legalizing marijuana, do not ever vote for Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes is the moral of this story.
