Governor Matt Bevin is voicing his opposition to recreational marijuana being legalized in Kentucky.

Bevin told WHAS radio personality Terry Miniers on his radio show Tuesday night that as long as he is Governor, he will not allow recreational marijuana to be legalized.

Bevin cited Colorado as an example of what's going wrong, saying there are people overdosing on the drug there.

This comes after a Kentucky state senator said last week he is in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana, and plans to bring it to the legislature for the January session as a way to get Kentucky out of its pension crisis.
