Denver made it to the shortlist of 20 cities to be the sit of Amazon's HQ2. Governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO) explains why being chosen for the tech giant's second headquarters would be a huge boost to Colorado.

Governor Hickenlooper clarifies a comment he made about the HQ2 competition, when he was quoted saying that he "wouldn't cry" if Denver wasn't chosen. He says that was meant to be a joke, and that being chosen by Amazon would be a major boost to the state's economy.

Governor Hickenlooper also discusses the latest development in the state, and around the country, when it comes to marijuana. Colorado, the first state to legalize recreational marijuana, is considering creating a marijuana delivery system.
