N.J. Gubernatorial Candidate: Drug Test Politicians Who Support Marijuana Legalization

New Jersey seems to be trending in the direction of legalization (or at least “decriminalization”) of marijuana, Save Jerseyans, and with Chris Christie set to leave office in January, we could see movement on this issue in a mere matter of months.

One New Jersey Republican gubernatorial candidate isn’t buying it, and he’s got a radical proposal as a prerequisite for pending legalization legislation.

“Before N.J. politicians vote on legalizing weed for recreational use, I would like to see all of them drug tested,” Nutley Commissioner Steven Rogers volunteered to Save Jersey on Thursday. “They should lead by example.”

Rogers added that he’s not opposed to expanding legalization “for all medical issues,” but he believes “[t]he public should know” about legislators’ marijuana habits before any prospective vote.

A former adviser to the Trump campaign and regular Fox Business guest commentator, Rogers is currently polling a distant 3rd out of five candidates (at 4%) ahead of the June 6th GOP primary election.
