Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Messer, Polis Introduce Landmark Bill to Protect Student Data Privacy
Representatives Luke Messer (R-IN) and Jared Polis (D-CO) today introduced the bipartisan Student Digital Privacy and Parental Rights Act of 2015, the most significant federal attempt to protect student data in decades. The bill enjoys the support of nearly two-dozen education groups, parent associations, industry leaders, and privacy advocates. The landmark bill would encourage innovation and harness its potential to drastically improve student learning, while also providing parents and educators with the certainty that operators cannot misuse student data. “The status quo surrounding the protection of our student’s data is entirely unacceptable,” Polis said. “It’s like the Wild Wild West – there are few regulations protecting student’s privacy and parental rights, and the ones that do exist were written in an age before smartphones and tablets. Our bipartisan bill is a much-needed first step in providing a framework that can address these concerns of parents and educa
Polis, Cohen, Blumenauer Lead Letter Urging White House to Choose Progressive DEA Chief
Today, Representatives Jared Polis (D-CO), Steve Cohen (D-TN), and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) sent a letter to President Obama urging him to nominate a new Drug Enforcement Administration chief that has a more progressive approach to federal drug enforcement. Barbara Lee (D-CA),  Sam Farr (D-CA), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) also joined in sending the letter. The Representatives urged the President to nominate a DEA Administrator who is willing to work with state and federal officials to create policies that work with­—not against­­—the evolving landscape of state marijuana laws. The letter states that retiring DEA director Michele Leonhart placed too great an emphasis on prosecuting marijuana use and not enough on drug-related activity that truly poses a public-safety risk. “The DEA plays a critical role in promoting the health and safety of Americans. But to succeed in its mission, it must refocus its efforts on cracking down on bad actors who seek to ev
Polis Hosts “Big Block of Cheese Day”
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) hosted his office’s first-ever “Big Block of Cheese Day” Tuesday. Legend has it that in 1837, President Andrew Jackson had a 1,400-lb block of cheese that he had received as a gift from a dairymaker but could not get rid of. To solve the problem, Jackson decided to open the doors of the White House one day to anybody who wanted to meet with him and/or Cabinet-level staff, in the hopes that the participants would also help him finish off the cheese. The legend was immortalized in the 1990s through the popular TV show “The West Wing.” In a nod to this spirit of accessibility and openness, Polis replicated the concept in Fort Collins on Tuesday by meeting one-on-one with roughly 50 constituents. A wide range of issues were discussed, including education, trade, health care, and the environment. Staff members also met with constituents and answered questions posed on social media. And Polis used the new video-streaming app Periscope to
White House Endorses Messer-Polis Student Data Privacy Bill
The White House today endorsed a bipartisan bill introduced by Reps. Luke Messer (R-IN) and Jared Polis (D-CO) on Wednesday that would better protect student data privacy. In a blog post by Jeff Zients, the Director of the National Economic Council, Zients writes: “…we are pleased to see Representatives Luke Messer (R-IN) and Jared Polis (D-CO) answer the President’s State of the Union call to enact new protections for K-12 students’ data to ensure that classrooms can embrace technology with confidence. The Student Digital Privacy and Parental Rights Act introduced yesterday is an important bipartisan step, building upon existing momentum from industry leaders committed  to ensuring educational data is not misused by providers or third parties, and carrying the strong endorsement of privacy advocates, the private sector, and associations representing parents and educators.  “The White House commends Representatives Messer and Polis on their leadership in this i
