Chris Christie: ‘I Will Crack Down’ On Legal Marijuana As President

new jersey governor chris christie medical marijuana kidsI cannot fathom why anyone would vote for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for President of the United States. His track record is awful, and that’s putting it lightly. When someone looks at his views on marijuana, whether it be medical or recreational, it becomes rapidly apparent that he is completely out of touch with a majority of Americans. He talks a lot about states rights when it doesn’t pertain to marijuana, but when it comes to marijuana, he is all about trampling the will of voters.

Chris Christie’s reefer madness was on full display this week when he stated that he would crack down on recreational marijuana if he were President. Per the Huffington Post:

If New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) becomes president of the United States, he said on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” Tuesday, he will “crack down” on those states that have ended prohibitions on marijuana.

When asked by Hewitt if he would enforce federal drug laws in those states that have legalized and regulated cannabis, Christie responded unequivocally.

“Absolutely,” Christie said. “I will crack down and not permit it.”

Chris Christie went on to say that no state should be allowed to sell and profit from legalized marijuana. In the past, Chris Christie has stated that he believes medical marijuana is just a front for recreational marijuana. He also stated that New Jersey would not legalize recreational marijuana on his watch, and has made previous comments that he would not treat states well that have legal recreational marijuana on the books.

Last time I checked, true Republicans believed in smaller government, and less federal interference in state matters. But I guess that only applies to issues that Chris Christie supports, and anything he doesn’t believe in should be stopped at all costs, regardless of what voters want. While I don’t think Chris Christie would win in a Presidential race (he has yet to technically announce he is even running), if by some miracle he did, I would probably move to another country.

  1. Kristi.
    .I’ve been smoking for 46 years this new years…BP has been 129 over 72…pulse 71..180 bad cholesterol. ..what’s yours? Influence young kids to smoke weed, and you should be jailed..10 years. Otherwise it’s an incredible option to booze…you must have spun a bearing on a martini..stopping weed at this point would be the dummest, most selfish move any president could do..Hey Christi…pull out now..it’s a done deal..your kids probably have or will try the evil weed..A bit naive Christie

  2. C.C.’s comments do not (Donut) dignify a response. He and the rest of the “donut-eating” law enforcement officials he seeks to protect are clearly worried. This is a bait and switch tactic that will be used by the GOP side to put in a similar GOP member who will appear to be more sympathetic at the Convention.

    The first sampling was the CARERS Bill with Corey, Paul, and the sharp alpha female from NY (whose name escapes me now). This C.C. outburst was tested on an alternate news site like Huff Post.

    Someone mentioned that this is a polarizing topic for ALL politicians and that they will create a national distraction to avoid addressing the real “will of the people.” I concur with that analysis.

    What truly concerns me is if they really did “legalize” this plant. I cannot see how “big business” wouldn’t inevitably profit; like Big Tobacco or Pharma. This is what NY and the Red States are being set up for…. in the future.

  3. Wouldn’t it be something if he got pulled over and the po-po find a crack pipe and about 10 grams of crack. What would people think about him then. He got enough crack to fill up 50 pipes.

  4. Just getting this information out there: The personal opinions of the “Elected” do not matter. The “Elected official’s” job is to just be “The Voice” of the collective will for all of their districts “Persons” (AKA: Humans and private corporations) who contact them and tell them their “Official” opinion. Sure personal opinions gets them elected. After the election is over their personal opinions fly right out the window.

  5. He’s not a real Republican. He’s a DEA RINO that for some reason thinks his views on Marijuana are in the majority. Rand Paul is a Republican and he does things to help out the cause. Please don’t put this guy in the same boat as people who are genuine. He’s only a genuine dick!

  6. Seriously who will vote for this blowhard! He likes to piss people off and I can’t imagine the majority voting for this dick.

  7. That bastard was voted in by the people to represent those said people!!! Those same people need to vote his sorry ass out!!!

  8. Mike Filarelli on

    Chris Christie is as crooked a government official as we have had in the US in a long time. He has already demonstrated his miss use of his office to further his agenda. I only hope he does run because that is what it will take to show his true self and what he is capable of doing.

  9. You’re right about Rand Paul and prohibition. But I don’t think I could vote for him. The gap between rich and poor is too big in this country, and growing, and I have to assume a libertarian would make that worse.

  10. Crack away … you fat porker… at least in the u.k. you know it’s illegal.

    Like that’s going to stop anyone !

  11. Legalize it! on

    I love the GOP,they clam they want smaller gov. Yet they made the biggest dept yet, homeland security and it’s nothing more than a clearing house for taxpayers money. Unless we the voters clear all politicians out that are not listening to the will of the voters we all loose.

  12. This guy is a complete toolbag, we need less idiots in office. Words can’t even depict how annoyed I am, after reading and watching that clip on CNN. Chris Christie is ANTI-American after that rhetoric position on pot.

  13. I think her current stance is that she’s watching the polls carefully Or as she and a lot of other bet hedging pols are now putting it, watching the experiment of state legalization.
