Governor Does Not Support Legalizing Pot

It's legal to smoke pot in Colorado and Washington but Governor Jerry Brown is not sure legalizing marijuana in California would be a good thing.

Governor Brown says it's because the country could lose its competitive edge if too many people are getting "stoned."

Brown says he worries that if pot smoking gains more legitimacy, it could have negative effects on the state and nation.

Voters legalized medical marijuana in 1996 but Brown says he is watching closely to see how Colorado and Washington handle their new laws with recreational pot.
