“Colorado legalized pot — do you believe it? I do. I think it’s going to change the world. This is the first state that has outright legalized marijuana,” said Johnson.

“The world’s going to be a better place when the police go out and enforce real crime, and victimless, nonviolent criminals maybe get out of jail,” he added.
