New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has not yet made the decision to run for President, but he recently reiterated his strong opposition to the idea of states legalizing marijuana.

During an interview with Christie on his radio show, Hugh Hewitt asked the Governor if he would enforce federal law on states like Colorado and Washington that allow the recreational use and sale of marijuana.

“You were a United States prosecutor for a long time,” Hewitt said. “Right now we’ve got the states of Colorado and Washington flaunting federal law by allowing people to sell dope legally. If you’re the President of the United States, are you going to enforce the federal drug laws in those states?” Christie quickly replied:

“Absolutely, I will crack down and not permit it.”

“Marijuana is a gateway drug,” Christie continued. “Um, we have an enormous addiction problem in this country, and we need to send very clear leadership from the White House on down to federal law enforcement. Marijuana is an illegal drug under federal law, and the states should not be permitted to sell it and profit from it.”

Christie’s position on marijuana is not a surprise; last June, he was asked by New Hampshire state representative candidate Brinck Slattery how he would treat states that have legalized medical marijuana. Christie answered “probably not well.” Christie also called New Jersey’s medical marijuana program and other medical marijuana programs a “fallacy” and a “front” for full legalization.
