April 23, 2021 – The co-hosts of the NMPBS podcast Growing Forward speak with former Gov. Gary Johnson, who supported legalizing cannabis when he was in office decades ago. The former governor explains that his reasoning goes beyond making money through taxes to saving money and restoring justice by expunging certain cannabis-related drug convictions that disproportionately affect people of color.
