US Today actually mentions Gary Johnson

The context is the liberalization of New York city marijuana laws:'

They say politics makes for strange bedfellows, so here's another example.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat and possible 2016 presidential candidate, is getting kudos from Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson for his call to decriminalize open possession of small amounts of marijuana.
Cuomo's proposal is a "welcome bit of sanity," says Johnson, a former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico. Still, Johnson believes it would be better to legalize marijuana outright in order to lift the burdens on police officers and the courts.
