Christie Prefers Online Gambling Over Marijuana For New Jersey

By Michael Hayne

(Toke Signals)


New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — who has his eyes on the White House — has made it abundantly clear that he opposes marijuana legalization in the Garden State. Speaking at a carefully screened townhall of mostly older residents, the blustery bombast of bridges had these words to say regarding marijuana:

“I am not going to turn our state into a place where people fly into to get high,” said Christie. “And if people want legalized marijuana in the state, elect a new governor.” (CBS)

As of now, people fly into New Jersey to get high off of industrial fumes and Snookie’s hairspray. Given all the millions in pot revenue raked in by Colorado, it’s odd that Christie would so deeply oppose it.
