Chris Christie rips Colorado ‘head shops'

Chris Christie just isn’t really a Rocky Mountain kind of guy.

The New Jersey governor, asked about Colorado’s marijuana legalization, slammed the state, criticizing its “quality of life.”

“See if you want to live in a major city in Colorado where there’s head shops popping up on every corner and people flying into your airport just to come and get high,” Christie said on a local radio show in New Jersey on Monday, according to CNN. “To me, it’s just not the quality of life we want to have here in the state of New Jersey and there’s no tax revenue that’s worth that.”

This Ron Paul response would be appropriate for Christie

Denver ranked as #5 city for fitness in 2011:

Boulder is the #2 happiest city in the US and Denver is #15:

What metrics is he going by? How many hamburgers you can buy per city block?

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Christie the Hut

He likes to be in control of the cannabis in his state.

"Q: May I grow medical marijuana myself?
A: No. Unlike other states where medical marijuana is permitted by law, New Jersey's citizens are not allowed to grow their own medical marijuana. This means they must rely on the services of medical marijuana dispensaries. At first, New Jersey will be limited to only six dispensaries, two in northern New Jersey, two in the central region, and two in the southern region. In time, more licensed dispensaries will open."

Christie, This is coming from

This is coming from a Colorado Native... Go fk your self ya fat blowhard. You have a state that needs your attention there. Worry about your own damn state and not ours. Statists be statin...

Mr. Bridge Blocker Extraordinaire would prefer

a donut shop on every corner. Food and power are his drugs of choice. Besides, walking up and down those mountains in Colorado is hard work.

Isn't that the most hypocritical comment to make, given

Given he is a governor of a major state, who doesn't mind that casinos have popped up on every corner and has people flying into the airport to gamble and get drunk. I guess that's the quality of life that Governor wrecking ball is very comfortable with.

He doesn't seem to be morally concerned about collecting gambling and alcohol tax revenues.


When was/is the quality of life in New Jersey so fantastic?? That place is creepy and disgusting. Even in their biggest cities.

Drove through New Jersey a few times. Went to Atlantic city months before the hurricane and it was completely dead. I think we were the only paying customers there. So surprising, with it's proximity to the most populated metropolitan area in the US.

When we went on the boardwalk the security guards told us it would be best for us to get off of the boardwalk or we could risk being stabbed. He really said "stabbed". At 6:30 AM!!

What in the world type of destination is that?? Quality of life seems to be lacking big time in that State. Is Christie talking about Trenton? Confused....

what a moron this fool is,,,


Thats right, do away with the weed that cures cancer and lets

All go have a dozen doughnuts. Who is he to even mention health aspects of anything as he is candidate #1 most likely to have a heart attack in the next 4 years. I would assume that the people in Colorado could care less about Christie's opinion and are glad that they might not have to pay for his health care for making such terrible decisions in his own life. Massive obesity or 1 hour high, I as a non drug user would choose the later.

Stay IRATE, remain TIRELESS, an

The man

can't even take care of him self yet he thinks he has the nerve to tell others what a quality of life is? HA!!

He is just another pathetic politician.

As a

citizen of Pennsylvania, I pray every night that Christie doesn't smoke pot, for if he did and he got the munchies, I believe whole-heartedly that he would grow to such a volume as to suck Pennsylvania into him via gravitational force.
