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 ...

Polis urges RTD to use savings to accelerate NW Corridor Train
Boulder, Colo. - Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) gave the following statement about the news that Regional Transportation District (RTD) will save $134 million by refinancing a federal loan provided for the Denver Union Station project.    “I am pleased to hear the news that RTD will be saving $134 million on the Denver Union Station project.  I urge RTD to apply the savings toward completing the Northwest Rail Corridor,” Polis said.  “The people of Colorado approved FasTracks with the promise of Northwest Rail connecting Boulder, Broomfield, Louisville, Niwot, and Longmont to the Denver metro area rail by 2017, then after passage that promise was broken and a ridiculous and unacceptable completion date of 2042 was announced.  I have said time and again that a delay of 20-plus years is unacceptable.  Now RTD has an opportunity to put a $134 million down payment toward correcting that broken promise, and they should take it.”  Polis has been an
Improve copyright system, YODA bill would
Today, introduced was You Own Devices Act (YODA), by Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) and Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.). In 2015, was when the pair introduced the legislation together.  Allowing essential software to travel with physical devices, like computers, YODA will do.  By modernizing copyright law in this way, a consumer can sell, lease, or give away a computer, as well as the licenses for essential software that allows the computer to operate, it will. “Old copyright laws stifle innovation and block consumers from being able to access more affordable products and technology," said Congressman Polis. "YODA will cut red tape and allow people to sell or give away devices without being strangled by paperwork and empty legal threats." “The YODA bill, today, I did file,” said Congressman Farenthold. “YODA simply states that your device belongs to you. If you wish to sell that device, the software that enables it to work is transferred along with it, and that any rig
Congress gets serious about Blockchain
Today, Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) and David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) announced the launch of the Congressional Blockchain Caucus. The bipartisan Caucus will be dedicated to the advancement of sound public policy toward blockchain-based technologies and digital currencies. “Blockchain has the potential to transform the 21st century economy,” Polis said. “Lawmakers need to understand that as the world rapidly changes, it’s our responsibility to ensure that we craft policies and adapt laws that match our ingenuity. Blockchain’s potential to reshape everything from the financial industry, to supply chains, to cybersecurity, to health care is something we should embrace. I look forward to the Caucus’s upcoming policy briefings and meetings that will educate members of Congress on these innovative technologies.” “Open blockchain networks and distributed ledger technologies are still new, but it’s critical for members of Congress to begin comprehending both their current appli
