Basically, except for a few outliers like the minor candidates Santorum and Christie, Republican candidates support the 10th amendment and the right of states to set their own cannabis policies.
Rand Paul is probably the most pot-friendly, and Ted Cruz the most ideologically committed to states’ rights under federalism (similar to the ancient common law of the Roman Republic).
Yet Rand is not polling well and will probably drop out. Of the top pollers, Ben Carson is the least pot-friendly, yet even he would support the right of states to medical cannabis.

What counts is not how candidates view pot, but how they view pot laws. Right now, cannabis is a states’ rights issue.
