Johnson Woos Overflow College Audience

Dope, peace and smaller government finds fans


BOULDER – Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson riled up young supporters Monday night with a message of legalized marijuana, an end to U.S. involvement in wars and massive cuts to the federal government.

A crowd of 600 spilled out of a lecture hall at the University of Colorado in Boulder to hear Johnson's message, the same day that his running mate held a rally in Durango.

"People are hungry to vote for a leader," Johnson said. "People don't want to vote for the lesser of two evils. People actually want to vote for somebody they think will make a difference."
