Yesterday former New Mexico governor announced his candidacy for President in 2012 and appeared on CNN to discuss his stances on a few issues. Johnson is well know for pushing for marijuana legalization in New Mexico and briefly discussed the topic of legalization in the CNN interview yesterday.
Johnson takes a very libertarian view on the issue saying that people should be allowed to smoke pot responsibly if they're not hurting anyone else.
"It will never be legal to smoke pot, become impaired and get behind the wheel of a car or do harm to others, and it's never going to be legal for kids to smoke pot or to buy pot," Johnson said.
Johnson also didn't back down from admitting his own past marijuana use, something I respect him for. It takes balls for a political candidate to put the truth out there like that, and Johnson should be commended.
