Texas Sen. Ted Cruz ‘foolishly experimented with marijuana’

Ted CruzTexas Republican Senator Ted Cruz smoked marijuana in his youth, his campaign told Daily Mail Online on Tuesday – putting him in the same camp as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who acknowledged his high school pot-smoking days on Friday.

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

The spokesperson wouldn’t elaborate about how many times Cruz had tried cannabis, over how long a period the experimentation occurred, and exactly how old he was at the time.

Many predict that Cruz will run for president in 2016, and if elected, he wouldn’t be the first president to have lit up in their younger days. The last three presidents have all admitted to smoking marijuana.
