NY mayor supports legalizing marijuana, if it's done right

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio says he's in favor of legalizing marijuana, but only if it's done right

The mayor spoke Thursday at a Dominican cultural center in upper Manhattan.

The Democratic mayor says legalization should include the expunging of petty crimes for pot. And he'd like marijuana sales to be closed to corporate interests and open to New Yorkers — especially African-Americans and Hispanics, who he says have been unfairly prosecuted for its use.

New York's Democratic governor announced his support for legalization last week.
