California's Gov. Brown Not Sure if Legal Pot Is Good Plan

California Gov. Jerry Brown says he is not sure legalizing pot is a good idea in his state 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.

Californians voted to legalize medical marijuana in 1996. But Brown says he is watching closely to see how Colorado and Washington handle their new laws that go a step further by regulating the growth and sale of taxed pot at state-licensed stores.

Brown says the world is dangerous and competitive, so people need to stay alert.

In a wide-ranging interview aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," Brown also discussed California's drought problems, climate change and his future political career.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington
