Chris Christie: 'I Will Crack Down And Not Permit' Legal Marijuana As President

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."
Citing an "enormous addiction problem" in the U.S., Christie, who has not yet announced a presidential run but has launched a political action committee, said that a very clear message needs to be sent "from the White House on down through federal law enforcement."
"States should not be permitted to sell it and profit" from legalizing marijuana, he said.
Cannabis is still prohibited under federal law. States that have legalized marijuana, for recreational or medical purposes, rely on guidance from Attorney General Eric Holder urging federal prosecutors to refrain from targeting state-legal operations.
Opposition to marijuana reforms is nothing new from Christie. As governor of New Jersey, he has been a vocal critic, calling medical marijuana programs that 23 states have already enacted a "front" for full recreational legalization. On the prospects for legalizing recreational marijuana in his own state, Christie has said, "Not on my watch." Last year, when asked how a President Christie would treat states that have legalized marijuana, he said, "Probably not well."
But what is surprising is that a majority of Republicans disagree with Christie's stance, according to the most recent polling from Pew Research Center. Fifty-four percent told Pew that the federal government should not interfere with states that have legalized marijuana -- that is, Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska.
Moreover, while only 39 percent of all Republicans support the legalization of recreational marijuana, 49 percent of those who identify as more moderate are in favor of legalization, according to Pew. Among millennial Republicans, support for legalizing marijuana is significant -- 63 percent are in favor.
Not to mention that Christie would need more than just GOP votes to win in 2016, and Pew found that 53 percent of Americans support legalization.
Tom Angell, chairman of the marijuana policy reform group Marijuana Majority, said that Christie's comments put him out of step with most Americans and with most members of his own party.

  3. The war on drugs has failed miserably and this idiot wants to destroy what little progress has been had over the last couple of decades. Unfreakingbelievable.
    Legalize, tax and make damn sure the money goes towards addiction treatment and education.

  4. Okay, let's see how many presidential candidates come out and say, "I'll support legalization of all drugs."

    That is political suicide. So, don't hold your breath, all you doped-up losers.

    the next PM of Kanada has said this - legalizing reality - the Boy King remains the presumptive favourite in October.

  8. Wrong. The war on drugs has been a resounding success. The purpose of the WOD was never to curtail drug use, but to promote it and profit on it coming and going (private prison profits on one hand, drug revenue for black ops on the other.) Virtually all narcotics in America are brought here with the connivance of people in positions of federal authority.

  13. ...a true-life memoir...about growing up in the small St. Louis suburb that CBS News chose in 1968 to document in an hour-long, nationally broadcast documentary..."six-square miles of The American Dream". In their documentary Sixteen in Webster Groves. I grew up in WG and my parents were corrupt law enforcement folks...both were sociopathic in their discipline techniques...(like much of that generation)..and the book is a vulgar, brutally truthful account of what it was like to grow up in such dysfunction...both personally and generationally. After releasing the book, I was diagnosed as having been genetically epileptic my entire life, and I drove off a 200 foot cliff at 70mph... so the marketing of the book suffered. Some people hate my book, about 30% absolutely love it and it has had an impact in their lives....so I'm good with that. The memoir has also been given 4.25 our of 5 stars for potential and is being pitched to film producers and network executives as I type. It is a humorous, brutally funny look at dysfunction the likes of which most Americans cannot admit to.....Ha! Take care...if you want the book, try the e-book version for $4.99...it is the best value if you are an e-book reader. RJ

  15. Christie is a closet pot smoker and Twinkie abuser. Holds private hotdog eating contests with himself.

    See how tiny his hands are? Someone should tell him pot smoking makes his penis grow larger: he'll make a 180 degree reversal on this subject!

    The obesity epidemic is far worse than the "addiction problem" in the USA, although you could call addiction to junk food an "addiction problem" just the same.

  17. ...dude....I come from one of the most dysfunctional families and childhood experiences you could ever imagine. My Dad was a six-foot-nine-inch, 350lb corrupt, racist, alcoholic St. Louis Cop....my Mother was a Court Clerk who embezzled thousands from the ticket fund...my Dad's nickname for me was..."Hitler's Atrocity"...as I was born two months premature and that is what he said I looked like? They beat us with 54 inch belts, police belts, nightsticks...soap down our throats...being thrown out for the night...not allowed back in until day light...(all at the age of 4,5,6,7,8 etc.)....so it was quite bizarre. In my teens I worked on a towboat going up and down the Mississippi...never went to college...or university....went on to work for 35 years...including working for US DoD as an Executive for almost 25 years...retired at the age of 49....wrote a book....was a Federally Protected Whistle Blower for over two decades and I finally beat them...without an attorney...(except to finalize my retirement agreement)....I retired at the pay grade of a Lt. Colonel....during my career I lived all over the world, climbed Mt. Fuji....lived in a 600 year old home in Germany...was deployed to war-zones, forest fires and educated thousands of people how to open, conceptualize and manage businesses for the US Military...as well as receiving a personal tour of Air Force One...and at the age of 49 it was discovered I'd been that I'd been genetically epileptic since birth..(obviously) and that I'd been experiencing "unobserved seizures" my entire life...(or those that my parents, two wives and associates never witnessed or ignored...?) I am now retired, promoting my book...getting ready for it to be made into a film....having recovered from a post seizure fugue state drive off a two hundred foot cliff at 70mph in 2010...(lots of broken neck, back, ribs, brain and head injuries). Either way...I've smoked weed my entire life...all over the world...with people of dozens of cultures...and employees of government and private enterprise...(post 16 years of age or so)...and I've never been a "loser"...or lazy....in fact, my problem is the other way...in that my mind is always running and processing the things I hear, read and am exposed to...including smear campaigns against people you have no clue of...at all! You are simply an uninformed soul who's parents raised you to be intellectually bankrupt and judgmental....what a sad life you must lead...?

    One size fits all?

  19. ...no...your actions betray your thought process...from there is it a simple deduction to determine your ego-state....try to learn to reserve our judgmental nature for people who actually ham others...learn to leave life-style decisions that are harmless to others...leave that to the individual...eh? You will live a much more rewarding, relaxed and enjoyable life...RJ

  20. "...no...your actions betray your thought process..."

    LoL That's something the dope does to a person, it gives you the felling you can read minds, that you are omniscient, and even clairvoyant.

    These are called, delusions of grandeur. And you're a classic case.

  21. ...no...actually it is called "defining the ego-state"...and is a common communications technique designed to identify the psychological state from which a person is communicating. For example, your judgmental tone suggests that you are misinformed, and an outsider to groups of people who enjoy or use cannabis for medical reasons...therefore since you are unaware, you feel the need to express an opinion, regardless of how stupid or uninformed you actually sound. But you also sound like someone incapable of taking responsibility for their own life and actions...probably often blaming others for your dilemma or situation....using the "child-ego-state" to shift blame or responsibility to others...for you own emotional and / or physical well being. In other words...you have an inability to act as an adult.....try to go grow up...eh? RJ

  22. Self-medicating is something speed freaks, junkies and crack addicts do too. It makes them feel better.

    BUY THIS GUY'S BOOK!



    I have to admit, as a voracious reader, I'm going to buy your book, just to satisfy my curiosity. It sounds fascinating.


    Five out of five in advance of the read.

  23. Great!...Do the e-book thing....$4.99...amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, etc....but if you buy a soft or hard version and enjoy it...or find value in it...I'll even sign it for you...as I truly think it will make a great movie...regardless of what people may think of my writing skills... (and in many cases my political leanings and writings)...the generational tale is enough in and of itself to do great things on film..as WGA Screenwriters tell me...the book has .."4-6 hours of film-ready material"...so we'll see. Many people hate my memoir, either out of a misplaced understanding of what it means to be an effective parent...thus repeating the many mistakes of their own parents...or because they confuse discipline with punishment.... but the book is brutally truthful and hilarious as hell in many ways...as are the stories told. One other thing to remember if you read Webster Groves...I was unaware of my life-long-epileptic-status until after the book was published...thus, now...in retrospect... many of my childhood experiences must have been impacted by the "seizures" no one noticed?...Ha!...enjoy the read!

  24. RJ- Already got it. Fantastic. I'm just finishing up Theodore H. White's "Breach of Faith -- The Fall of Richard Nixon" and when I am done with that this weekend I'll read "Webster Groves -- The Life of an Insane Family" by RJ O'Guillory.

    In White's book, I just read a passage that introduces 1970. I always knew there were bombs going off then. Theodore H. White gives them a number, over 3000 bombs were set off in the U.S. , many of them hitting Bank of America branches; 3000 bombs set off by radical groups in U.S. in 1970.

    And people today think things are messy.

    RJ- Best of luck with the book. Life is good, if far too short. Grab all you can get, is my advice. Use restraint and caution at every turn. Take the high road. And remember, the only thing that is truly immoral, is to do something that messes up the future.
