TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie vowed Sunday to eliminate legalized marijuana in states like Colorado and Washington if he’s elected president.
The Republican governor, speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” said his administration would use federal rules that outlaw marijuana to clamp down on states that legalized recreational pot use.
“Yes sir,” Christie told host John Dickerson when asked whether he’d go after Colorado and Washington.
“If you were president would you return the federal prosecutions in the states of Colorado, Washington states?” Dickerson asked.
“Yes,” Christie said.
