In an interview with Reason, US Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who led the slimy government shutdown that ended in January, claimed Obama's unwillingness to prosecute legal weed distributors is "dangerous to liberty." Just as laughably, Cruz actually said he supports "intelligent conversation" about the issue.
Then he proceeded to make idiotic oversimplifications like: “The Obama administration’s approach to drug policy is to simply announce that across the country, it is going to stop enforcing certain drug laws.”
He also stated that if Obama fails to enforce federal pot laws, it “should even concern libertarians who support that policy" because when the president decides to “ignore” criminal laws, “that is a very dangerous precedent.” Newsflash, Ted! Just about every libertarian in existence opposes pot prohibition.
Cruzexpanded the “sky is falling” scenario claiming Obama opts to “pick and choose what laws to follow,” something “fundamentally dangerous to the liberty of the people.”
Yeah, Cruz is all for liberty—as long as he gets to decide for everyone else.
