Gary Johnson gained national attention with the one-liner of the night at this week’s presidential election. Shortly after the debate GQ published a noteworthy profile of Johnson. I interviewed the laid-back Johnson last Fall in San Francisco for a Fault Lines episode about the vote to decriminalize marijuana in California last year  (above — Make sure to watch it in HD and on full screen if you can. The controls are in the bottom left of the screen.). Voters narrowly rejected the proposition at the polls; however, for pro-decriminalization types, like Johnson, the campaign was successful in moving the debate about the political, social and economic impact of marijuana from the fringe to mainstream. Check out the program and let me know what you think.
