Pusha T Takes Part In PSA Supporting California’s Marijuana Legalization Bill Prop 64 (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) For several weeks, Terrence “Pusha T” Thornton has thrown himself in the middle of national politics.

Pusha formally endorsed Hillary Clinton for president and publicly called for criminal justice reform.

In addition, the G.O.O.D. Music president is backing California’s Proposition 64 through a public service announcement.

Prop 64 is a voter initiative on the November ballot that calls for the state to control, regulate, and tax responsible adult use, sale, and cultivation of marijuana.

“If California’s Prop 64 passes, no one will ever be incarcerated for marijuana again,” Pusha states in the PSA. “I’m not a California voter, but I know when good legislation passes in the biggest state, other states follow. What’s most important to me is keeping people who are coming home, home. If ending prohibition on marijuana reduces recidivism, then let’s do it.”

Pusha is part of Artists for 64, a group of entertainers supporting the Adult Use of Marijuana Act.

Shawn “Jay Z” Carter, Russell Simmons, Common, Ty Dolla $ign, Jesse Williams, Shailene Woodley, Olivia Wilde, Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte, Piper Kerman, Michael K Williams, and Al Harrington are connected to Artists For 64 as well.
