California Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) told reporters Wednesday that he doesn’t consider California to be a sanctuary state but rather a “Golden State,” a reference to the state’s nickname.

A reporter asked Brown if it was too soon to consider making California a sanctuary state for marijuana following Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to change federal policy about the substance.

The reporter’s question played off of the so-called “sanctuary state” bill that Brown signed into law in October, which limited cooperation between “local officials and federal immigration enforcement.”

“First of all, we don’t have a sanctuary state. We have a Golden State,” Brown said.

Some reporters in the room laughed when Brown suggested that California was not a sanctuary state.
