As it became clear that a majority of Americans were happy with neither major party candidate in the 2016 elections, third-party support rose to a fever pitch when at one point before the debates Libertarian Gary Johnson was polling at 10, 12, 15, in some purple states 19 percent.

He was being taken seriously. At least for a while.

Ganja Gary,” as the zeitgeist would have him be known, was running on #TeamGov with former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld. Asked why he jumped into the race, Gov. Weld told Time Magazine, “the politics has become poisonous on both sides. And it almost seems that the two parties in D.C. exist for the purpose of killing each other.”

Is something wrong with him?

But, for many, something just seemed a little off, with Mr. Johnson and they couldn’t pinpoint exactly what it was. Maybe it was the time he got “freaky deaky” with Samantha Bee or perhaps you were turned off by the fact he was once a CEO of a major cannabis company.

Indeed, he is the highest public official to advocate the legal sale and recreational use of marijuana.

The Aleppo moment that wouldn’t go away

It was perhaps a gaffe even worse than Gov. Rick Perry’s 2012 moment of … Oops — ahh, I forgot. It’s one thing to forget a foreign agency, but to be campaigning to become the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces, it seems a little strange to be completely unaware of Syria’s most intense war zone.

When questioned by the hosts of “Morning Joe” over his stance on Aleppo, Johnson had no clue what they were talking about. It was only afterward that he said they were speaking of an acronym. But, even when he did speak, he sounded insecure over his positions and knowledge of Syrian Civil War.

The Libertarians were stoned …by voters

Johnson had, ultimately, hoped to secure 5 percent of the vote nationally. That would have made his Libertarian Party a major political party in the U.S. and allowed for federal matching funds in future elections. As for running for public office, Ganja Gary has no intentions to do so.

Instead he fell short, after securing just 4 percent of the vote. Ouch.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, he would rather take a 3,000 mile bike ride across the Continental Divide from New Mexico to Canada.  “I’m dedicating myself to health and fitness,” Johnson said of his plans moving forward. “Maybe I stay politically active, but not as a candidate. I will leave that to others.”
