He spoke Monday night at the campus of CU South Denver in Parker, saying the United States' two party system has run its course.

He also spoke on the topic of legalization of marijuana.

"Denver is the most vibrant big city in the United States," he said. "I think legalization of marijuana has something to do with it. Not because people are high, but because there's this underlying notion that Colorado is about freedom," Johnson said.
