Today outside the Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C., Reason TV caught up with Sen. John McCain (R-Az.) and asked him his thoughts on marijuana legalization.

Nick Gillespie: "Is pot legalization a good idea?"

Sen. John McCain: "I don't think so. I'd leave it up to the people but I think it's a gateway drug and I'm not going to change that opinion."

Nick Gillespie: "Should it be decided at the state level or at the federal level?"

Sen John McCain: "I believe the state level. I've always believed the states should decide."
