New Jersey’s Governor Christie Trashes Colorado Over Pot Laws
"Go to Colorado and see if you want to live there," stuttered New Jersey's Governor Chris Christie Monday (April 21) during an interview on New Jersey's 101.5. See what else he had to say about our state.
Governor Christie went on a rant about decriminalizing marijuana during his radio show on New Jersey 101.5, saying there are "all sorts of problems" with the legalization of the drug. Mainly blaming no current roadside tests to determine if a drive is stoned or not. The Breathalyzer wasn't invented until 1958, that didn't stop the legalization of alcohol -- after the prohibition of course.
Going to say, "... those who are enamored with the (income) tax revenue from this, go to Colorado and see if you want to live there."
Here's where he really gets personal, "See if you want to live in a major city where there are head shops popping up on every corner, and people flying into your airports just to get high."
And here's the stab to the heart, "That's just not the quality of life we want here in New Jersey."
That's a low jab if you ask me; because Colorado, as a State, decided to legalize a plant, our quality of life is that much lower than how life is in New Jersey is now?!
What's so special about Jersey, I've been there and wasn't impressed. I'm not bashing the state, I'm sure there are better areas than Atlantic City.
And not everyone who flies into Colorado is flying in "just to get high," well, actually they are. High in elevation, high on the endorphins they get from flying down one of our world class ski runs, or cruising through one of our beautiful canyons on a raft. Yes they come here to get high, high on life ... man!
Gov. Christie has probably never stepped foot in Colorado, and let's keep it that way.
That's all I have to say about that, let me know what you think.
