SANTA FE – Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson is in the national news again. He has launched a nationwide nonprofit campaign to advocate libertarian views on current issues.
The campaign includes a Web site, www.ouramericainitiative.com, containing written statements and film clips of Johnson explaining his positions on the economy, drugs, civil liberties, the environment, abortion, the Federal Reserve, taxes and defense.
On the controversial issue of drugs, Johnson said, “We advocate a ‘Don’t do drugs’ policy. Drugs can be harmful, addictive and destructive. The current war on drugs, however, has not been successful.
“We believe there needs to be a new direction in fighting these problems,” Johnson said. “One of the best solutions to help with the many problems caused by drugs is to legalize marijuana. We do not advocate the legalization of any other drugs and believe that harm reduction measures should be implemented.”
Johnson believes that marijuana should be regulated and taxed by the federal government just as tobacco is currently. It would lead to a lower price for the product and eliminate the criminal element from its distribution just as the repeal of prohibition did for alcohol.
