    Chris Christie vows to 'crack down' on marijuana as president

    Chris Christie vows crackdown on marijuana as president - CNN.com

    Christie: Marijuana is a gateway drug. 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.

    The governor has long opposed both medicinal and recreational marijuana and only allowed tightly restricted use of medical marijuana in New Jersey after a very public lobbying campaign that pitted him against the father of a little girl.
    I like Chris Christie, but a guy the size of a refrigerator shouldn't be talking about addiction. I'm guessing he only complains about 'big government' if Cola-Cola is what is being restricted.

    The smart thing for the Republican candidates to do is to stay away from this topic, or say it should be a state issue.

    The feds should decriminalize marijuana and leave it up to the states to pass referendums. Right now there is a conflict though with federal laws saying it's illegal and state laws permitting it. Him trying to crack down on pot legalization really isn't much different from what Obama did with AZ when they passed the immigration bill that went against fed law (and was struck down in court when brought to trial).

    There was a time I'd have considered voting for Christie. The bridge debacle, where he threw his staff under the bus and pretended he didn't know what was going on outside his office door, pretty much quashed that. This bit of extremist idiocy solidifies it.

    He is a wanker, he wouldn't even OK the "Charlotte's Web" cannibis oil that helps kids with seizures, it has no THC, can't get you high, but has helped so many kids.

    Exactly. He's just pandering at the cost of people's health and lives. Medicinal uses for cannabis is finally being studied in earnest, and what they are discovering is nothing short of miraculous... PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, physical brain trauma, epilepsy... amazing stuff.

    I always love it when these clowns support barbaric laws on us. It makes him look stupid, didn't her pass the law in his own state. Is nationally THC is different then the THC in his state . This reminds me of Obama Romney care and how that clown made a stand against Obama care. What do they think it is different in a state then it is nationally. They are fools and panderers and they have no opinion that isn't created by what other people think. Democrats are controlled by conscience , regressives are controlled by the 1% and anything to do with Bible thumping and Flag waving although is bot these examples , they say it but don't live it or believe it. They just pander.

    He took it to court and waited until the courts decided whose power belonged to who?

    With the AZ law? If I remember right the court said AZ law went beyond federal law and fed law trumps state law, therefore it was overturned. I could be wrong though.
