Libertarian Gary Johnson continues to reiterate his support for legalization of marijuana by going to a Denver, Colorado dispensary.
Johnson says that if he’s elected president, medical marijuana businesses that are operating within state and local laws wouldn’t have to worry about efforts by federal prosecutors to shut them down.
Huffington Post had some comments to say regarding his endorsement, and went over the finer details of the growing support for legalization in the state of Colorado.
Johnson’s endorsement comes just a week after Rasmussen released a new poll that found 61 percent of likely Colorado voters favor legalization and regulation of marijuana.
That is the highest percentage of Colorado voter support that any marijuana legalization poll has shown to date. In December of 2011, a similar poll from Public Policy Polling showed only 49 percent in favor of general legalization of marijuana.
Gary Johnson is the Presidential Nominee of the Libertarian Party, is a former business owner and former governor of the state of New Mexico.
