Cynthia Nixon backs legalizing weed during pot parade

Cynthia Nixon was high on legalizing weed but didn’t inhale as her fellow demonstrators openly toked during an annual pot parade in Manhattan Saturday.

“Arresting people for cannabis — particularly people of color — is the crown jewel for the racist war on drugs and we must pluck it down,” Nixon said at the NYC Cannabis Parade and Rally across from the Union Square Whole Foods.

The “Sex and the City” actress and Democratic challenger to Gov. Cuomo spoke after some 300 parade puffers marched down Broadway chanting “legalize don’t demonize” and “make it legal, free the people” while waving signs declaring “pot power” and “cannabis is an exit drug.” Protesters smoked in plain sight, danced to rock music and even munched on “magic” brownies.

Nixon said she’s only smoked weed twice and it “wasn’t for her.”
