Nearly 150 demonstrators bashed New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie, in a spirited protest outside the front door of the Statehouse in Trenton.

The 4/20 demonstration was a protest against Christie’s opposition to decriminalization and legalization of marijuana, and included remarks from Makeda Marley, the youngest daughter of reggae legend Bob Marley and Jawara McIntosh, the youngest son of reggae luminary Peter Tosh.

“It’s time to stop the hypocrisy,” Jawara McIntosh said after singing a few verses of his father’s still popular “Legalize It.”
