On my journey to work this morning, the dreamy, familiar voice of Steve Inskeep
was replaced by another, almost-as-familiar one: that of former New Mexico Gov Gary Johnson. He was talking to KUNM's Arcie Chapa about legalizing marijuana, among other things. A couple of pithy quotes from Johnson:
"Ninety percent of the drug problem is prohibition-related, not use-related."
"All of the thousands, if not millions of entrepreneurs, business people, doctors, lawyers and scientists who would move to New Mexico [if] marijuana was legal...maybe that wouldn't be such a bad thing!"
And no, I was not
reporting while driving. You can access the KUNM archive here
; set your times for 8am - 9am today to hear Johnson. Oh, and...don't forget: If you're bored with Obama-ism, you could join the 1,848 Facebookers
who plan to elect this guy for president.
