Former Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie condemned Democratic presidential candidate and California Sen. Kamala Harris on Fox News Monday night, after Harris endorsed the legalization of marijuana on a radio program earlier in the day.
Christie said it would be unwise to legalize marijuana amid the ongoing opioid crisis, while suggesting that Harris was callous to laugh about her experiences with the drug during her Monday interview.
“Kamala Harris can laugh all she wants but she should should go to some of these funerals that are happening around the country,” Christie said.
“Maybe Senator Harris should do that and she wouldn’t be chuckling about joy,” Christie added. The New Jersey Republican chaired a White House task force on opioid addiction and pursued drug indictments as a federal prosecutor.
