Gov. Chris Christie went on a diatribe Monday against a new push to legalize marijuana in New Jersey.
“We are in the midst of the public health crisis on opiates,” added Christie, who has been tapped by President Donald Trump to chair a commission to find ways to fight the opioid abuse epidemic in America. “But people are saying pot’s OK. This is nothing more than crazy liberals who want to say everything’s OK.”
A study from 2014 by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found a 25 percent decrease in prescription drug overdoses in states with medical marijuana laws that allow chronic pain patients to participate.
