Chris Christie said in a town hall meeting yesterday "As of January 2017, I will enforce the federal laws" while speaking about marijuana in CO. Remember everybody - when it comes to gay people, his view = "states' rights", but pot? "Federal powers"

There is a federal drug law that is ignored.

Are you asking a question or trying to just vent your opinion?

Like other GOP blowhards, he wants to legislate morality… and he has no chance of winning.

Christie is a Horrible Governor
He's a Bully and a Hypocrite
We're still waiting for an accounting of the Hurricane Sandy Charity monies

You got a long wait. Have the democrats empty their pockets to see what falls out. Remember He prosecuted132 politicians and won them all. They're all in it for the money they can scam.

I can safely say not Hillary. I don't know yet. Bernie is fun. I used to like Christie, no more. I do like the way Carly Fiorina speaks.

Hmmm... haven't really listened to Carly
And I agree that Bernie does sound interesting

I agree - her moral turpitude leaves much to be desired. That Fiorina though? A whole different level of crazy

OK, I won't vote for her. I should wait for Hillary to actually say something to the press. A chicken in every pot is not enough info.

To be fair, this a quite common view on both sides. People that support marijuana in co tend to support gay marriage federally and vise versa.

I think that's been fixed now! Or so I've heard.

While I don't agree with his stance on either issue it's not necessarily hypocritical to view one as a states rights issue and one as federal. Marriage criteria has generally been seen as a state issue while drugs are seen as interstate commerce

I can't answer this properly without knowing exactly what he stated about gays, when he stated it, and what the context was.

There *is* existing federal law prohibiting use of marijuana, which (theoretically) supersedes state laws. I certainly

don't agree with his proclamation that he would enforce that, much less think that it was smart of him to make that statement, but at least there is legal standing for it.

Don't know who he's trying to pander to with this one. He's so far downhill...

He's saying when he wins the presidency. I say if he wins, and that's a big if.

Marijuana is considered a schedule one substance and it's illegal under federal law. It's also a violation of the drug treaty to legalize it at the federal level. In my opinion, he wants to enforce a federal law on the states and they can do that.
