Cannabliss: Senator Ted Cruz said legalization of recreational marijuana should remain a matter for states.
Candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, Senator Ted Cruz, has said that, if elected, he would not interfere with Colorado’s decision to legalize marijuana.
He declined an invitation to make a judgment about the two years since the state legalized recreational use of the substance for adults over the age of 21 but acknowledged that he would leave the final say on legalizing marijuana use to voters in individual states.
His remarks were made during an exclusive interview given to the Denver Post before he was due to address 6,000 at the Republican convention in Colorado Springs.
“Mr. Cruz has echoed the sentiments of all the other candidate nominees for both Republican and Democrat parties,” said Brad Flint, marketing spokesperson for Cannabliss, the Florida-based wholesale distributor of medical and recreational marijuana and cannabis-infused edibles.
“Such is the scale of the groundswell of support for marijuana legalization, it would be a very brave candidate indeed who chose to get in front of that train,” said Flint.
Mr. Cruz has said that he, personally, is against the legalization of marijuana and would not vote for a bill that would decriminalize it. He did, however, say that he remained open to seeing how legalization in Colorado and other states played out.
Cannabliss is set to launch a small chain of 22 retail outlets supplying legal marijuana to those with physician’s prescription in the state of Florida pending the outcome of a state-wide vote on a November 8, 2016 ballot.
Cannabliss is a wholesale distributor of medical marijuana products on the continental United States. Cannabliss only works with retail and medicinal outlets – we do not offer or distribute THC or CBD-based products directly to patients or to the general public.
We buy highly-consistent, fully-balanced, pure cannabis-infused edibles from leading growers and manufacturers of THC and CBD-based products and provide secure, reliable and safe distribution to a number of well-known, licensed medicinal and recreational use dispensaries in all of the 23 states that have passed legislation permitting the use of medical marijuana. Our ability to buy inventory from the growers and manufacturers in considerable quantities means that we are able to pass on generous discounts to our contracted outlets enabling cheaper prices for end-users and enhanced profitability for dispensaries.
