Pusha T Voices Support for Legal Marijuana in California

California's Proposition 64 would make the herb available for commercial sale and personal use.

Pusha T took a break from dissing Drake and supporting Hillary Clinton to weigh in on another important issue in 2016: the proposed legalization of marijuana. Specifically, Pusha lent his support to California’s Proposition 64, which would make the herb available for commercial sale and personal use. The rapper filmed a public service announcement to make his case for pot legalization—particularly as a path to criminal justice reform.

“If California’s Prop 64 passes, no one will ever be incarcerated for marijuana again,” he said, echoing the sentiment other rappers like Jay-Z have shared.

“I’m not a California voter, but I know when good legislation passes in the biggest state, other states follow,” he says. “That’s an important step in ending mass incarceration around the country.”
