Governor of Colorado: I’m Getting Close to Supporting Recreational Marijuana

Gov. John Hickenlooper told NBC’s Chuck Todd that he’s pretty close to supporting the sale of marijuana if it were put on a ballot today.

“I’m getting close. I don’t think I’m quite there yet, but we have made a lot of progress,” Hickenlooper told Todd.

Hickenlooper original opposed the sale of marijuana, but since his state of Colorado had passed the law legalizing the sale of recreational marijuana Hickenlooper conceded to Todd that he saw more benefits from it than harm.
