Gov. Christie Said He’s Not Trying To Sabotage Medical Marijuana Program

Gov. Chris Christie is denying that he’s trying to sabotage New Jersey’s medical marijuana program.

It’s been more than three years since medical marijuana was legalized in New Jersey and only one dispensary has opened in the entire state while other clinics have been mired in bureaucratic red tape.

It’s a move that Christie calls intentional.

“I do not want people flying to New Jersey, getting off a plane, going to some fake doctor, saying they have a headache and going and picking up pot which is what goes on in Denver, Col. every day,” Christie. “It ain’t happening here.”

    right. instead they can go to a doctor with a fake headache and get some pills, then become a barely functioning pill head walking around in a permanent haze. or just get some weed of the street, you know. no quality control, no age check for id, no legal course of action if things go sour. like he or anyone not affected by these problems really cares.

    Once the governors of the other 48 states see their tourism dollars flowing out of state to Colorado & Washington, things will change rapidly. The Colorado tourism board estimates a 35% increase in tourism the first year of implementation, with an increase of revenues approaching $11 billion dollars(Yes that’s a B). If correct, no politician in America will ignore those figures.

    Chris Christie does not want people flying in and getting medical marijuana when they may not need it – but will it actually happen or cause any harm if it does. If he really does not want it to happen then he should campaign for every state to offer medical marijuana to those who qualify. He should also be challenged on the assumption he is making that access to cannabis will cause harm – this is something that all politicians do but there is little evidence to support this seemingly incontrovertible assumption. The same thing happens when medical dispensaries are near schools – people just assume something bad will happen but in reality it is no more obtrusive than any other kind of store or clinic.

    He said it best himself “When I want to sabotage something, I just pull the funding out from it.” Good to know Chris Christie purposefully sabotages the state of New Jersey-no wonder its’ such a craphole.

    Hey Christie, I got your It ain’t happening here right here (crotch grab)!

    You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about. You’re a fat fuckin’ slob, and the fat has gone to your head and is affecting your brain. Like people in Jersey can’t get pot without a fake fuckin’ doctor. Are you fuckin’ kidding me?! Weed is everywhere in Jersey. If your schools didn’t keep their student survey data private, you might have a fuckin’ clue. The only thing you’re doin’ is keepin’ the crime families in the weed business. Thanks a lot, you dumb fuck! You’re ensuring the weed money keeps flowing. I think I’ll go out and buy a new fuckin’ Cadillac, and pay in cash! I’ll be donating to your political campaigns, for sure.

    It’s sad to see the governor apparently does not understand that Colorado legalized cannabis, there is no need to go to a fake doctor there for a headache because it is legal in the State of Colorado. Dah! And this this guy is a politician?
