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.
