California Governor Jerry Brown (D) told NBC's Meet the Press that he does not approve of legalizing marijuana, stating that the population needs to "stay alert."
Brown goes on, saying:
"The problem with anything, a certain amount is okay. But there is a tendency to go to extremes. And all of a sudden, if there's advertising and legitimacy, how many people can get stoned and still have a great state or a great nation? The world's pretty dangerous, very competitive. I think we need to stay alert, if not 24 hours a day, more than some of the potheads might be able to put together."
