For example, Ted Cruz hit the headlines back in 2014 when he quite aggressively criticised President Obama for choosing not to prosecute marijuana smokers in Colorado. He basically wanted Obama to use Federal jurisdiction to imprison cannabis users, going over and above state law in Colorado.  Which was bad enough, but later in 2015 he basically did something of a flip-flop and said that if the citizens of Colorado want to ‘go down that road’, then it’s essentially their own right and their own funeral.  Suffice to say, exactly the kind of guy cannabis advocates would probably rather avoid entirely.
