Mike Gravel talks about Palin, his new TV show, pot and more on The Young Turks

On April 30, Mike Gravel – who was a contender for the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination in 2008 – took part in an interview on the online news show The Young Turks. Much of the interview focused on a television show Gravel is working to produce called “I Like Mike.” According to Gravel, it will be a satire with the premise that he has been elected president and the direct democracy which he advocates for has been implemented.

At the conclusion of the interview, Gravel and the host talked very candidly about smoking marijuana. Gravel said that he used to do it but never got a high, although he did once have “laced” brownies and he enjoyed them.
