Gary Johnson booed at Tea Party Rally

Pot Legalization Brings Boos at Tea Party Rally -, Jan. 18, 2011:

"I attended a Tea Party rally this morning in Santa Fe held on the steps of the state capital building. The keynote speaker was former Governor Gary Johnson who is rumored to be running for president.... His speech brought enthusiastic applause from the sparse crowd....

"When Tea Party members were invited to ask questions, someone asked the governor if he supported legalization of marijuana.  Gary responded that he did.  His remarks brought a chorus of boos from the crowd.  Gary went on to make the case for legalization based on the cost of incarcerating pot smokers, but the crowd wasn't having it.  The boos erupted again.  Some members of the crowd began to heckle the former governor."
