NEW YORK — Cynthia Nixon fans who agree with the former ‘‘Sex and the City’’ star that marijuana should be legalized can support her campaign for governor of New York by entering a contest to win a bong.

The contest to win a glass bong signed by Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer of Comedy Central’s ‘‘Broad City’’ runs through July 16.

The contest website says it ‘‘may be a silly contest but it’s a serious issue.’’

Jacobson and Glazer support legalization.

Nixon spokeswoman Lauren Hitt says about 2,000 people have entered. The website seeks but does not require donations.
