Even though state lawmakers have moved to make changes, Gov. Chris Christie said he will fight to prevent his administration’s proposed medical marijuana restrictions from being removed. The governor expressed concerned of too lax of regulations and was citied as saying he did not want “a de facto legalization of marijuana” for New Jersey at a Tuesday press conference. There are currently a total of 13 states that allow medical marijuana.
Christie cites being a former U.S. attorney as reasoning for his anti-marijuana platform; though New Jersey passed the bill the day before he took his governing position in January.
“We’re not going to have a head shop in every town and quack doctors writing prescriptions for people with headaches to get marijuana,” said the New Jersey governor. “That’s not going to happen on my watch…I’m for them getting it from doctors who’ve been treating them all along, not from doctors parachuted into the situation with a profit-making motive like we’ve seen happen in California and Colorado,”
Right now there are 13 states who allow the medicinal use of marijuana.
