FEATURING MELISSA MOORE – A few days ago mysterious billboards began popping up in New York advertising a slick looking private club for marijuana users called Country Club Cannabis (CCC). The club had an online presence and used slogans like, “The Privilege to Indulge.”
It turns out that the ads were part of a satirical action by the group Drug Policy Alliance to demand that the state legalize marijuana and do so equitably so as to address those most harmed by a narcotics ban.
The group hopes that New York will join the growing list of states legalizing recreational Marijuana use but be the first to do so within an equitable framework.
