Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson on Cobert Report: Legalize Pot!

I just had to share this. It comes from The Colbert Report. Former New Mexico Governor, Gary Johnson, was on the show last night (May 10, 2010) talking about the pros of legalizing marijuana. Now, I have done a lot of reading and research on the push to legalize marijuana. Mostly, they are pot or marijuana advocates that are academics, users, researchers, and celebrities. Sometimes, you get a local politician. Rarely, do you find a (former) governor, let alone a Republican governor who also supports gay marriage, getting into the public arena espousing why marijuana should be legal, or at least decriminalized. He is articulate and succinct, something I tend to lack. So I will let him tell you why it should be legal. But then again, if you are already on this site, I am preaching to the converted.

You definitely want to check it out.

And help spread the word! It is really simple. Who better than a Republican to deliver a message other Republicans might be able to hear? (Notice I said might. This won't work for tea baggers.)  So send this on to that crazy aunt or conservative grandparent or that friend that just might need a little push. Who knows? They might just actually change their mind.
