Forbes on Ted Cruz

Position: Favors States Rights

Ted Cruz co-sponsored The Smarter Sentencing Act of 2015 to give judges more flexibility in sentencing, so he believes some people are unfairly incarcerated. He has now “evolved” his position on cannabis and supports states rights to choose whether to legalize or not. At the conservative conference earlier this year, he said he would not crack down on legal marijuana if he were president.
