Cynthia Nixon: Marijuana is “Effectively Legal” For White People

What's The Deal With Cannabis Lounges In California

Executive director, Bill Lipton, says many in the party blame Cuomo for the continued control of the State Senate by Republicans, saying Cuomo didn't do enough to help Democrats win seats and mend differences.

Take New York Gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon, who recently added a $4.20 donation button to her website to express her support for legalized marijuana.

NYPAN co-chair Traci Strickland stated: "Cynthia Nixon, who, unlike the incumbent, is not an ambitious career politician, is not deterred by Cuomo's horde of millions of campaign dollars collected nearly exclusively from the 1% of corporate polluters, hedge fund billionaires, real estate speculators and other rich special interests".

When the nod becomes official at the party's nominating convention next month, it would give Nixon a critical line on the November ballot if she loses the Democratic primary in September. It's possible that pressure from progressives and people like Nixon are convincing him to possibly evolve on the issue.

The small but influential Working Families Party endorsed Cuomo in 2010 and 2014.

Trump won't attend White House correspondents' dinner, again
Talev said Trump's press officer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders , instead will represent the White House at the head table. Among his quips: "I was very excited to receive this invitation and ruin your evening in person".

Cuomo reportedly decided not to seek the group's endorsement Friday night after it became clear the WFP would support Nixon.

Cuomo's backers denied he threatened members of the party, and several major unions dropped out of the party on Friday.

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

Nixon is probably best known for her role as one of the stars in the TV show "Sex and the City" from the early 2000s, and has also won an Emmy, a Tony, and a Grammy award.
