More Video of Gary Johnson Railing Against the Drug War

After writing last week about former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson’s recent comments on the drug war, I came across this great video of the outspoken politician addressing drug policy activists.

The new video is from a 2001 Drug Policy Foundation (now Drug Policy Alliance) conference in Albuquerque, and shows Johnson, who was still governor at the time, giving a rousing speech calling for the legalization of marijuana and the repeal of drug prohibition.

“The War on Drugs is a miserable failure,” Johnson says in the video. “There is not a bigger issue in this country that is going unaddressed.”
