Governor Brown expressed his reservations about legalizing marijuana for recreational use.
"fiscal discipline is the fundamental predicate of a free society, ... but it may help if everyone isn't getting stoned. ... Well, we have medical marijuana, which gets very close to what they have in Colorado and Washington, ... I'd really like those two states to show us how it's going to work. The problem with anything, a certain amount is OK. 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."

Look at the state of Copenhagen, Denmark. One man's positive is another man's negative and vice-versa. . . . Read and reflect on why other countries are still illegalizing marijuana. . . .
It takes an abundance of rules and regulations to manage this legal process. Who is willing to create the system and manage it? Is the projected outcome is greater than the projected income?
The State of Competition
"Competition is the greatest matter of any capitalistic economy, the basis of success and failure, the Dao to survival or extinction. It must be thoroughly contemplated and analysed."
The competitively innovative people are regularly mindfully alert. The state of being mindfully "stoned," will usually lower the state of competitive efficiency.
One stays alert by practicing the art of mindful centerness. From personal experience, mindful centerness and sipping some good tea will assist one in become innovative. ... While necessity is the mother of invention, mindful experience and conscious awareness are usually the causes for great innovation.
