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.

 Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
