Backlash Over NAACP Marijuana Endorsement

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Bishop Ron Allen is backed by faith based leaders in opposition to the NAACP's position on the legalization of marijuana. Bishop Allen, the leader of the Sacramento-based International Faith Based Coalition, attended the California NAACP news conference on June 28, 2010 in Sacramento to oppose the NAACP support for the legalization of marijuana. He was ushered out of the news conference by a NAACP lobbyist before the event began. BishopRon Allen and Faith Based Leaders are planning a press conference to unite in opposition of the NAACP's position on Proposition 19 (Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act 2010), on July 7th In Sacramento, California.

Bishop Ron Allen says, "It is time to take a closer look at how decisions are made at the California NAACP and what the contributing factors were that caused Alice Huffman to side with Proposition 19. California NAACP President Alice Huffman is selling out the very people that the NAACP has a history of protecting. She has been bought and paid for by the highest bidder, in this case it is George Soros, his Open Society Institute and the Soros Foundation Network. We know Soros is a major contributor to the NAACP and he is a primary funding source for the legalization of marijuana worldwide. With Huffman's position on legalization, she is destroying the good work the NAACP has done for the African American people, and she is discrediting the good name of the NAACP. She has sold us out for her personal financial gain and I call for her immediate resignation. Alice Huffman, step down as the President of the California NAACP now and restore its good name."

Allen continues, "As a NAACP member, I call for an internal investigation as to the NAACP's ties to the marijuana lobby."
