'I Feel A Responsibility To Stick Up For Those People Who Have Been Punished': David Crosby Featured In New Pro-Pot Radio Ad

In a new radio advertisement, rock and folk artist David Crosby opines on how North Dakota’s current drug policy is for the byrds (sorry).

Appealing to voters to approve a measure that would end cannabis arrests for adult users in the state, the former Crosby, Stills & Nash singer asked that they consider a "new, sensible approach to marijuana" that would put an end to "needlessly locking up our fellow citizens for possessing a plant."

A long-time cannabis advocate, Crosby currently serves on the Advisory Board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. The advertisement itself was put together by the Legalize ND campaign, who says that they are "humbled and honored" to have Crosby’s support.

Upon the launch of the ad, Crosby released a statement that said that he feels "a responsibility to stick up for those people who have been punished as a result of this oppressive and senseless policy. I believe that people should not be arrested or go to jail for the responsible use of a substance that is objectively safer than alcohol, tobacco, or most prescription drugs."

While the ad is primarily airing on local markets in North Dakota, you can hear it on Soundcloud below.

Derived from the part of the cannabis plant that doesn't get you “high” like THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is typically used for health reasons instead of for recreational purposes, and has been found to be especially useful for treating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. A challenging neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s causes a combination of motor and non-motor symptoms — such as tremors, weakness, stiffness, dizziness, anxiety and sleeplessness — that affect daily life. CBD, typically taken in oil form, has the potential to relieve these symptoms, improving sleep, reducing inflammation and more, which can profoundly help the more than 10 million people across the world suffering.
