Chris Christie Is Really Against Legalized Pot

“It’s just not the quality of life we want to have.”

Gov. Christie is not a fan of Colorado’s legalized pot, Politico reports:

“See if you want to live in a major city in Colorado where there’s head shops popping up on every corner and people flying into your airport just to come and get high,” Christie said on a local radio show in New Jersey on Monday, according to CNN. “To me, it’s just not the quality of life we want to have here in the state of New Jersey and there’s no tax revenue that’s worth that.”

For what it’s worth, the people of Colorado seem to like it just fine.

    Legalizing Weed is an idea whose time will NEVER come. After they legalize weed, it’s a race to the bottom for every lazy white kids that doesn’t feel like working. Hopefully they legalize weed and lace it with some stuff that will kill these junkies. Then we won’t have to absorb their medical bills once they actually grow up.

      I agree. As a former emt having to see what drugs hasdone to these kids , o d death , the heartache of the mily , working in a hospital with a detox unit as a cna while as a vol emt I know first hand what drugs can do and weed is that gateway drug . I would rather see the trash just die and get it done and over with the first time . all they do is just keep on doing the same crap over and over. You keep getting called back for the same crap.
