NAACP Supports Legalization of Weed

"The people who are putting our kids, incarcerating our kids for drugs, they're the ones who should be locked up and not our kids. Once you take it off the black market, the underground market, you regulate it through the stores, it'll be just like alcohol."

-- Alice Huffman, President, NAACP California Chapter, on her organization's endorsement of a November ballot to legalize recreational marijuana use.

Wow. So the NAACP and Libertarians have something in common after all. This is hardly a new argument, but, it's still flawed because simple possession of weed doesn't carry prison time. Unless, the NAACP's position is that "our kids" are major drug kingpins?
