Former New Mexico governor and possible presidential candidate Gary Johnson talks about Obamanomics, ending the drug war, and climbing the highest mountains.
I believe that the issue is at a tipping point nationally. We've had a vote during the last general election in Massachusetts to decriminalize marijuana by a vote of 65 to 35 percent. Wherever medical marijuana has been on the ballot, it's passed overwhelmingly. A Gallup poll just a couple months ago suggests that 44 percent of the population of this country believes that marijuana should be legal. It's never been that high. People armed with just a little bit of knowledge on this topic move to a more rational position, rather than "lock 'em up."
