California governor Jerry Brown is harshing on Colorado and Washington's multimillion dollar mellow.

The governor appeared on Meet the Press this morning and talked pot, saying California's medical marijuana laws—which are a very serious bar to obtaining marijuana, and definitely not just a $30 "doctor" appointment at the Venice Beach boardwalk—shouldn't be relaxed because it would ruin the country.

It's worth noting Brown was accused of hosting cocaine-and-marijuana-fueled parties at his Los Angeles home in the '90s.

"How many people can get stoned and still have a great state or a great nation?" Brown told David Gregory. "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. "

Because no admitted marijuana users have gone on to be president, host the Oprah Winfrey show, or sit on the Supreme Court.
