The best Gary Johnson video yet: Win the Drug War by Ending It



Note to John Young:  Sadly, I couldn't find a subliminal in this one.  Maybe you'll have better luck.

The war on drugs needs to be with prescription pain killer addiction. It is at an all time high. Anyone who reads this comment (and anyone who doesn't) knows someone addicted to prescription drugs. whether they know it or not.
btw, I love Gary Johnsons voice (in all senses of the word) wishing and waiting to see him on ad. on tv. Will we?

also, the video has no market at 2:04, it goes from 2:03 DIRECTLY to 2:05. Strange, but seemingly these vids are VERY meticulous in their production

Actually, "Pencadermom", the war on painkillers is one of the saddest aspects of the expensive, counterproductive and unconstitutional War on Drugs. That's because the war to which you refer has become a war on pain doctors and pain patients. Newsweek ran a story several years ago about the high percentage of patients suffering long-term, searing pain, who couldn't find sufficient prescriptions, and doctors coerced to play cop with their patients, and the FDA/Big Pharma distortion leading to the prescription of more side-effect-causing NSAIDs and less use of the purer, safer opioids (a poppy plant-based medicine that goes back several thousand years to Egypt). Governor Johnson isn't a fan of prescriptions, but when he slashes the DEA's budget by 43%, I can assure you he will become less a fan of the War on Pain Patients and Pain Doctors once he gets the truth, instead of the demogoguery floating around about prescription-caused "addiction" or deaths (which, as Senator Coburn, MD, realizes, in committee hearings on the topic, usually stems not from prescription overdoses, but rather from the mixing of drugs with alcohol).
