Colbert Does Gary Johnson

A fun clip of Colbert interviewing Gary Johnson on the subject of marijuana legalization. Funny as it might be, I just wish Colbert would let Johnson talk a bit more.

For those that don't know, Gary Johnson is the former Republican Governor of New Mexico and a perennial favorite among Libertarians. He's supposedly contemplating a White House run next time around. Check out and join his Facebook page.

Hat tip to Radley Balko for the heads up on the clip.

Gary Johnson has some weird ideas about weed. I think it is because he never could handle his own use until he stopped cold turkey. He relates an anecdote of smoking up before a timed ski run. Who does that? He was hardcore compared to the other 90% of weed smokers.

I do appreciate his support for total decriminalization of all drugs. He says that over the counter crack would be better than what we have today... and he is correct. He claims not to actually advocate OTC base rocks as a solution. He advocates the Swiss model of treating addiction as a medical condition. This is very pragmatic and may win votes of smart people. Unfortunately, we live in a country chock full of complete idiots.
