Gary Johnson ‘The Marijuana Guy’ Takes Legal Marijuana Pitch To Los Angeles
The Republican Presidential Hopeful takes his message of legal marijuana to the Los Angeles proletariat at The International Drug Policy Reform Conference
The International Drug Policy Reform Conference in downtown Los Angeles might not seem like a sensible campaign stop for a Republican presidential hopeful. There was reggae music blasting, little lapel pins shaped like marijuana leaves, and a speech by California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the uber-liberal former mayor of San Francisco who is famous for granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples. But on Thursday, Gary Johnson stood there before an audience of drug decriminalization activists, drawing cheers for his promise that if he wins the Republican nomination and is elected president, he will issue a full pardon for anyone serving prison time for a non-violent marijuana crime.
