An ABC/Washington Post poll released last Wednesday found a common nominator amongst Democrat, Republican and Independent voters – they don’t like either of the Presidential candidates. With 60% of voters having a negative opinion of his candidacy, Trump won the poll, but Clinton is right on his tail with a 59% unfavorable rating.
In what is becoming another “lesser of two evils” election, it would seem a golden opportunity for a third party candidate to make inroads into America’s monolithic two party system. With almost 10% of voters expressing their desire for the candidacy of former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, it would seem that the Libertarians have an once-in-a-lifetime chance to finally be taken seriously by voters.
If Johnson could increase his standing to 15% of the voters, he could participate in what is being predicted to be the most watched Presidential debate since the first Kennedy-Nixon debate in 1960. With most voters not enamored of either Clinton or Trump, the lean and rugged (he climbed Mr. Everest) Johnson is the anti-thesis to what most voters see as Trump’s bombastic buffoonery and Clinton’s calculated chicanery.
Although Trump will most likely lose more voters to Johnson than Clinton, it is very likely that Johnson could win enough electoral votes to prevent either Clinton or Trump from obtaining a majority of the 538 electoral votes and hence the Presidency. With no candidate receiving a majority, the decision on who is to become President will be decided by the U.S. House of Representatives which almost certainly will still be controlled by Republicans.
Curious on how that little imbroglio will be handled? The National Records and Archives Commission has provided the answer:
If no candidate receives a majority of Electoral votes, the House of Representatives elects the President from the 3 Presidential candidates who received the most Electoral votes. Each state delegation has one vote.
Any bets on who that may be? It's not likely to be Clinton but could it be Johnson?
So who is Gary Johnson? Judge James Gray knows as he was Gov. Johnson’s V.P. running mate in the 2012 elections where they received over 1.2 million votes representing 1% of the popular vote.
At the Wednesday, September 7 meeting of the Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project, James Gray, retired Orange County Superior Court Judge, ardent advocate for ending marijuana prohibition and the War on Drugs and author of the seminal treatise Why the Drug War Has Failed and What We Can Do About It, will provide the answer.
Judge Gray believes the Libertarian Party’s has a solution to the current presidential conundrum and that is their candidate for President, Governor Gary Johnson. Judge Gray will provide a run down on Gov. Johnson personal and political qualifications, his position on many issues facing the country and, of course, Gov. Johnson’s position on marijuana and drug law reform
He will also explain the Libertarian Party’s unique governing philosophy emphasizing personal freedom and a free-market economy. Although the Democratic Party for the first-time ever included a plank in the national party platform calling for “a pathway to legalization,” the Libertarian Party has a long history of supporting ending marijuana and drug prohibition.
Gov. Johnson is polling around 10% of likely voters and needs to increase that level of support to 15% in order to be included in the Presidential debates.Judge Gray will lay out the road map to that magic 15% number. Learn about Gov. Johnson and maybe you might be one of those people to be polled who say they favor Gov. Gary Johnson for President.

MARIJUANA USE IS AT
AN ALL-TIME HIGH
A new report issued by the National Institute of Drug Abuse has found that over 13% of adults in the U.S. have used marijuana up from 10% in 2002.
According to study’s author, Dr. Wilson Compton, deputy director of the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse, "This increase has corresponded with the legal and social acceptance of marijuana, and so it is not such a surprise."
According to Steven Reinberg, senior reporter at Healthday.com, what might have surprised NIDA researchers is their finding that “despite greater usage, rates of marijuana abuse or dependence held steady in the general population at about 1.5 percent from 2002 to 2014. But among pot users only, the rate of marijuana abuse or dependence dropped from 15 percent to 11 percent.”
As many of you know from your own personal experience, marijuana use has not only been enjoyable, but beneficial for your physical, mental and social health. As more Americans either return to or start using marijuana, the increasing use of marijuana will have an overall positive and beneficial impact on our communities.
