N. Jersey Gov. to TSA, ‘Profile Westcoasters Entering Newark’

Chris Christie

TRENTON—New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has directed the TSA at Newark Liberty International Airport to screen all residents entering the state bearing ID from California. The lifelong marijuana prohibitionist says the screening is “designed to stem the tide of cannabis flooding the Jersey shore this outdoor season.” At press time, a Virgin America spokesperson announced that over 5,000 flyers had already changed their itinerary this evening from Newark to JFK airport.
