According to the Daily Chronic, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie adamantly vows to hack away at the progress of the legalization of Marijuana in the United States if he’s elected President in 2016. On “The Hugh Hewitt Show”, a syndicated radio program, Christie said “I will crack down and not permit it. Marijuana is a gateway drug”. Ironically, January of 2010 legislature approved a measure for medical cannabis the same year Christie later became Governor. Christie calls the New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act a “front” for legalization.
On the greener side of things, its official, Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia has signed House Bill 1 today legalizing Medical Marijuana. House Bill 1 also permits cannabis oil with a max of 5 percent THC. The oil is meant to treat specific ailments recommended by a physician.
