New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie answers a question Tuesday, July 19, 2011, in Trenton, N.J., after he announced he will allow the state to begin dispensing medical marijuana despite his concern over whether federal authorities could prosecute state regulators. Christie, a Republican, said he supported the concept of medical marijuana for patients for some conditions but didn't think the law was tough enough. His critics say he has used the regulatory process to change the law, even though it's considered among the most restrictive. (AP Photo/Mel Evans) less
