Chris Christie to legal marijuana smokers: Enjoy it while you can because he'll enforce federal ban
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is attracting attention to his struggling presidential campaign by making it clear he doesn't want to recognize state laws legalizing recreational marijuana.
In town hall meetings in New Hampshire and an appearance on Fox News this week, Christie said that if elected, he intends to overturn state marijuana legalization laws, which have been passed in Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Alaska.
"If you're getting high in Colorado today, enjoy it until Jan. 17 of 2017," Christie told an audience in Newport, N.H., on Tuesday, "because I will enforce the federal laws against marijuana as president of the United States."
Christie has long been critical of marijuana legalization, saying it can cause brain damage and lead to the use of such drugs as heroin and cocaine. Christie has lagged in polls in the GOP presidential race in recent months but is receiving a new burst of publicity this week as he speaks out against marijuana.
