Ted Cruz Says He Wouldn’t Interfere With Colorado Marijuana Legalization

COLORADO SPRINGS — If elected president, Republican Ted Cruz said Saturday he would not interfere with Colorado’s legalization of marijuana.

In an one-on-one interview Saturday with The Denver Post, the Texas senator said he opposes legalization but declared that the U.S. Constitution allows “states to experiment.”

“I think on the question of marijuana legalization, we should leave it to the states,” Cruz said before addressing 6,000 GOP activists at the state GOP convention in Colorado Springs.”If it were me personally, voting on it in the state of Texas, I would vote against it.

“The people of Colorado have made a different decision. I respect that decision,” he continued. “And actually, it is an opportunity for the rest of the country to see what happens here in Colorado, what happens in Washington state, see the states implement the policies, and if it works well, other states may choose to follow. If it doesn’t work well other states may choose not to follow.” [Read more at The Denver Post]
