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 Outlines CO Priorities Ahead of Highway Transportation Debate
As Congress prepares to return from August recess to begin debate on overall government funding and a reauthorization of the Surface Transportation Reauthorization, Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) today pushed leaders of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to prioritize programs that could provide resources for critical infrastructure projects in Colorado. In a detailed six-page letter to the Chairman and Ranking member of the committee, Polis digs deeply into the specific federal programs and budget line-items that have proven effective in funding and financing huge, challenging transportation infrastructure projects and could help to fund priority transportation projects in Colorado. Programs that Polis highlights and discusses in the letter include the Federal Aid Highway Program, the Transportation Infrastructure and Innovation Act, the Projects of National Significance budget line item, and Freight Corridor funding.

Polis statement on President’s plan to improve financial aid access through the FAFSA
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) released the following statement today regarding President Obama’s announcement that the Department of Education will begin accepting prior-prior year tax returns for students filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA): “The President’s decision to allow students to use prior-prior year tax data on their FAFSA applications is an important step toward making federal financial aid more accessible for students and families. The current process, which requires students to wait until the spring before they attend college to complete their application, often forces students to make important decisions about college without knowing how much they’ll receive in federal aid. Using prior-prior year tax data is a commonsense solution – one that I’ve advocated for in Congress. I’m glad to see the President taking the initiative to make this change.” In July, Polis introduced the Simplifying the Application for Student Aid Act along wit
Polis announces support for nuclear agreement with Iran
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) issued the following statement today in support of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the multilateral nuclear agreement with Iran announced by President Obama on July 14th: “The last thing the world needs is another state with nuclear weapons. Iran’s support for global terrorism and its nuclear ambitions pose a grave threat not only to our national security, but to our ally Israel and the security of the world. It is precisely because of this threat that we must do everything within our power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. After carefully reviewing the 159-page document and its classified annexes, discussing the matter with constituents and security experts, and weighing our alternatives, I have concluded that this enforceable, verifiable agreement is the best available option to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. I will oppose legislation that seeks to stop the United States from participating in it. “Congress must cons
Food Freedom: Polis Pushes Feds to Lay Off Kombucha Firms
Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) today pushed the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) to refrain from fining kombucha firms in Colorado and across the country for taxing and labeling violations and to instead work with them on a compromise over kombucha’s regulation. Over the last several weeks, the TTB have sent letters to kombucha companies telling them their product was “unlawful” for not following the proper taxing and labeling regulations that govern alcoholic products and that they could be subject to fines. According to TTB tests, these kombucha products had reached levels higher than the .5 percent threshold by which an alcoholic beverage is defined. “Eight spoiled kombuchas are roughly the equivalent of one beer, but that doesn’t mean we should regulate it like we do alcohol – it makes absolutely no sense,” Polis wrote in a letter sent today to TTB. “The TTB should provide some common-sense clarity and relief for the kombucha firms in Colorado and across th
