In light of recent comments offered on the Hugh Hewitt Show regarding federal drug laws, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie should be rejected as a candidate for president. Hear his plan for “cracking down” on marijuana above.
Forget marijuana. The plant is not the issue here. Federal drug laws represent an unconstitutional excess as much as Obamacare, Common Core, or the EPA.
Conservatives who support federal drug prohibitions because they generally oppose drugs have thus conceded the argument for federal intervention in every other area of life. A hypothetical Christie administration cracking down on citizens in Colorado and Washington for abiding by state law will prove no different than the Obama administration cracking down on states for defying his unconstitutional edicts.
