Gary Johnson – Reddit

Gary, I can’t thank you enough for doing this! Very excited and energized by your campaign. My questions are:

Do you believe your stance on marijuana will cause older people, or people generally not in favor of marijuana use to dismiss you as just “that guy for pot legalization” instead of focusing on your other stances on issues?
