Chris Christie: 'I Will Crack Down And Not Permit' Legal Marijuana As President

If New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) becomes president of the United States, he said on "The Hugh Hewitt Show" Tuesday, he will "crack down" on those states that have ended prohibitions on marijuana.

When asked by Hewitt if he would enforce federal drug laws in those states that have legalized and regulated cannabis, Christie responded unequivocally.

"Absolutely," Christie said. "I will crack down and not permit it."

Citing an "enormous addiction problem" in the U.S., Christie, who has not yet announced a presidential run but has launched a political action committee, said that a very clear message needs to be sent "from the White House on down through federal law enforcement."

"States should not be permitted to sell it and profit" from legalizing marijuana, he said.

Cannabis is still prohibited under federal law. States that have legalized marijuana, for recreational or medical purposes, rely on guidance from Attorney General Eric Holder urging federal prosecutors to refrain from targeting state-legal operations.

Foes Of Marijuana Legalization Can't Like These New Numbers

Opponents of legalizing marijuana can't be happy about several new polls released Tuesday. Majority support for making cannabis legal is holding steady, while young adults are legalization's biggest fans. And that's true both nationally and in several swing states.

Nationally, 53 percent of Americans support legalization, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. Pew found essentially the same result, 54 percent in favor, in a similar poll last year.

Millennials are far more supportive than other voter demographic groups, according to Pew. Sixty-eight percent of those aged 18-34 support legalization, a full 16 points higher than the next most supportive demographic, those aged 35-50. An earlier Pew survey showed that the millennial demographic is significantly more supportive across party lines.

Among Americans of all ages in both major parties, the latest Pew survey found that those who described themselves are more left-leaning than their party peers were also more likely to favor marijuana legalization. Seventy-five percent of Democrats who called themselves liberal favor legalization. Forty-eight percent of Republicans who identified as more moderate or left-leaning support legalization. However, Republicans who identified as conservative oppose legalization 2-to-1.

Overall, solid majorities of Democrats (59 percent) and independents (58 percent) support legalization, Pew found. While only 39 percent of Republicans are in favor, that's the highest GOP support since Pew started asking the question in 1969.
