Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) smoked weed as a teen; wants to jail others for doing the same

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) smoked marijuana as a teenager, but regretted the “experiment.”

    “Teenagers are often known for their lack of judgment, and Sen. Cruz was no exception,” a Cruz spokesperson told the Daily Mail. “When he was a teenager, he foolishly experimented with marijuana. It was a mistake, and he’s never tried it since.”

    Cruz has said he is open to debate about reforming the nation’s drug laws. However, the senator has criticized President Barack Obama for allowing marijuana legalization to move forward in Colorado and Washington state.

    Cruz suggested the federal government should continue to arrest marijuana users Colorado and Washington state for violating federal law.

    “You could discuss commonsense changes that maybe should happen or shouldn’t happen,” he said during his keynote speech at Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Policy Orientation in 2014. “This president didn’t do that. He just said, ‘The laws say one thing’ — and mind you these are criminal laws, these are laws that say if you do ‘X, Y, and Z’ you will go to prison. The president announced, ‘No, you won’t.’”

    Oh, for fuck's sake, can we just have the short list of the politicians who DIDN'T have their 'youthful indiscretions' with pot.

    And can we please be spared all their sackcloth and ashes lamentations over their once taking a few puffs off a joint.

    More of the "do as I preach, not as I do" hypocrisy from politicians, no one is surprised.

    How is states implementing their own laws different than that fuckhead in Nevada who had his cattle illegally grazing on federal land for 20 years or so--Cruz was behind that dude 100%. Oh I know how it's different the voters of Colorado and Oregon approved legalization.

    I guess it just depends on which federal laws people happen to break. Hopefully they can publish some kind of reference so we know which ones he supports breaking versus enforcing.

    I live in Texas and this state is run by narcissist's, hypocrites, and old-fashioned black and white law enforcement. Either your a criminal or your not. A 5$ bag of weed makes you a criminal and you will go to jail and will be belittled in the process. It's not a state you want to live in for users. Traffickers on the other hand.. theres a lot of opportunity but if you get caught there's even bigger punishment
