David Crosby has joined the advisory board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML).
He says, "I’d like cannabis to be legal everywhere. I knew people who were in jail for years over a couple of joints and it’s just not right... It should be legal and people shouldn’t be going to jail for it, and I want to reinforce that to the degree that I can... The places that have done it are winning and they will have money for schools, roads, and hospitals, and are no longer arresting otherwise respectable adults for consuming marijuana.”
Also on the advisory board are Willie Nelson and former Dallas Cowboy Mark Stepnoski. Crosby has also been looking to license his name and likeness for a line of marijuana.
In other Crosby news, he has reacted to Ted Nugent's claim that he should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Croz says, "That is really funny stuff... He’s not good enough and he never will be... A hack player and no singer at all -- could not write a decent song if his life depended on it."
Crosby is a two-time member of the Hall with The Byrds and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
