“I don’t have a problem with states experimenting with this sort of thing I think that’s the role of states,” NORML quoted Cuccinelli as saying. “I’m not sure about Virginia’s future, but I and a lot of people are watching Colorado and Washington to see how it plays out.”
Cuccinelli is quickly emerging as a hero of conservatives, who hope to see him elected governor this November.
He has been a leader in efforts to overturn the Affordable Care Act and has challenged the National Labor Relations Board, Environmental Protection Agency and other federal departments he believes oversteps their bounds.
"Cuccinelli is best known for his efforts to preserve liberty and defend the Constitution," according to his campaign website.
"Ken is now the conservative 'it' candidate following 2012," the American Thinker published in December. "He's running in a state that went to President Obama and Democratic Sen.-elect Tim Kaine. His candidacy will draw national resources to defeat him because the left believes it cannot let the conservative phoenix rise from the ashes. He will be portrayed as something he's not."
Cuccinelli, 44, served as a member of the Virginia State Senate for eight years before becoming attorney general in 2010.
