New Jersey Governor Chris Christie recently stated on a syndicated radio show that he would not let America legalize marijuana if he is elected president in 2016.
Christie stated he would “crack down” on the states that have already done so.
“I will crack down and not permit it,” Christie responded when asked by the radio host if he would enforce federal drug laws in Washington, Colorado and other states where voter approved measures are “flaunting federal law by allowing people to sell dope legally,” according to the host.
Christie went on to say that he thinks “marijuana is a gateway drug” and that “we have an enormous addiction problem in this country. And we need to send very clear leadership from the White House on down through the federal law enforcement. Marijuana is an illegal drug under federal law. And the states should not be permitted to sell it and profit from it.”
