Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson traveled to Florida with “campaign-style stops” in Tallahassee, Melbourne and Orlandom, according to the St. Petersburg Times. Johnson spoke about cutting taxes, cutting spending and, yes, legalizing marijuana.

“The issue of marijuana legalization is obviously an attention-getter,” Johnson told the Times. “And you can’t shy away from it. I have to defend it. I have to defend the position.”

Johnson served two terms as governor of New Mexico and made his money from a construction company in New Mexico.

Johnson, who has said that he cannot say whether he is running for president because of his role with the nonprofit Our America Initiative, distributed the story that mentioned a potential presidential run on his Twitter page.

Care Net and NARAL reps go head-to-head over allegations of misinformation in crisis pregnancy centers

Care Net, a network of more than 1,100 pregnancy centers across North America, released a statement earlier this week in response to a video posted on YouTube by pro-abortion rights group NARAL New York. NARAL’s video highlights some of the controversies surrounding crisis pregnancy centers around the country. The video advocates a municipal-level push to provide women with information about what services crisis pregnancy centers actually provide. Care Net claims that the video exposes NARAL's national strategy aimed at shutting down these centers and directing women to abortion providers.
