Forbes on Chris Christie

Position: Against

Chris Christie made his position on marijuana clear during the last presidential debate as he connected it to his pro-life stance. He went on to call marijuana a gateway drug, which most studies have proven not to be the case. He also insisted that New Jersey has an emphasis on rehabilitation, not incarceration. Christie also said he supported medical marijuana laws in New Jersey, but it is known for being one of the strictest and most difficult programs in the country. Christie was forced to implement the law, which was signed on his predecessor’s last day in office. Plus, he can’t support medical marijuana and then turn around and state that he’d enforce the federal laws against marijuana which would essentially make medical marijuana criminal.
