Aspen Ideas Festival: Hickenlooper and Couric with 'The Dope on Pot'

Katie Couric interviews Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper at the 2014 Aspen Ideas Festival about marijuana laws, in a session titled, "The Dope on Pot." Governor Hickenlooper opposed the constitutional amendment, approved by 55% of Colorado voters, which legalized recreational marijuana. He answers questions from Couric and the Aspen Ideas Festival audience about medical and recreational marijuana laws. Hickenlooper says there is a lot more that we don't know than we know, and called marijuana legalization "one of the great social experiments of this century."
