NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- The governor might be in favor of legalizing weed.

Andrew Cuomo says he wants a decision based on a state study.

"The world is changing very fast," he said. "New Jersey is talking about legalizing it. You have Massachusetts on the other side. We are now in the midst of a study on what the consequences would be."

Let's see the results of that study, Cuomo says.

Colorado has collected a billion in taxes after legalizing marijuana, and Cuomo's opponent in the Democartic primary favors legalization.
