& Rakim Bring Out Cynthia Nixon During New York Show

When Cynthia Nixon announced her bid for governor of NY in March, against incumbent Andrew Cuomo, the whole thing seemed fairly freakish. You can check out the slightly surreal footage above. When asked if she wanted to legalize weed in a New York Times interview published on Monday, Nixon said "One hundred percent". Getting two of the city's hip-hop icons on board is an unlikely place to start but every vote counts.

Cynthia Nixon is challenging Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York's gubernatorial race. "But I, as of this date, I am unconvinced on recreational marijuana".

"If there was more political courage coming out of Albany, we would have done this already", Nixon added in the video.

The governor of NY is proposing to prohibit all employers from asking job applicants about their prior salary history.

NRA Took Donations From Nearly Two Dozen People Linked To Russia
Wyden received this letter after months of questioning the NRA's possible Russian Federation ties. The NRA did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Wyden's referral.

Last week, she held a fundraiser which, according to the New York Times, included enthusiastic support for legalization. "I know that Eric B.is president, but I'm here because I want to be governor of NY state". "As far as the homelessness crisis in New York City is concerned - we agree it is egregious and must be managed properly - to that end, we urge her to talk to her good friend the mayor".

A spokeswoman for the governor's campaign did not have an immediate response. Despite his opposition to marijuana legalization, in 2014, he did sign into law the Compassionate Care Act, which created a medical marijuana program for the state. Cuomo has directed the study to be done anyway, led by his health department, and he wants it to look at how legalizing recreational marijuana use might affect public safety and health, the criminal justice system, and what economic impacts there might be.

A representative for Nixon did not immediately respond to request for comment.
