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 ...

MARIJUANA: Polis Pushes Feds to Stay Out of State Drug Policy
The House of Representatives today voted on two bipartisan amendments sponsored by Representative Jared Polis (D-CO) to the Commerce, Justice and Science (CJS) Appropriations bill. The Amendments would stop the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) from preventing states from implementing their own marijuana laws. The McClintock-Polis Marijuana Amendment would prevent the DEA from prosecuting individuals who use, sell, or possess marijuana in compliance with state laws. This measure would provide much-needed certainty to marijuana businesses that they can operate free from harassment and interference by federal drug authorities. The amendment narrowly failed on a vote of 206-222. The Rohrabacher-Farr Medical Marijuana Amendment, which Polis cosponsored, would prevent the DEA from interfering with state medical marijuana laws. This amendment passed the House last year with bipartisan support and was included in the omnibus government-funding bill signed into law in December 2014. Renewing
Polis, Roe, Kind, Kelly Introduce Bipartisan Legislation to Modernize Retirement Information Communications
Representatives Jared Polis (D-CO), Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN), Ron Kind (D-WI), and Mike Kelly (R-PA) introduced bipartisan legislation today that would modernize the way employers communicate important retirement information by automatically opting participants into electronic delivery of documents. The Receiving Electronic Statements to Improve Retiree Earnings (RETIRE) Act would catch-up with Americans’ overwhelming shift towards digital communication while providing strong protections for those who prefer to receive paper documents. Under current law, employers waste significant money and paper mailing documents like notices, disclosures and statements to retirees. For context, it’s estimated (conservatively) that the costs of sending just one four-page notice to recipients is between $36 and $60 million. The RETIRE Act would reduce mailing costs, protect our environment by eliminating thousands of pieces of paper mailed each day, and make information more accessible to re
PRIVACY: Polis Amendment Preventing DEA Bulk Surveillance Passes House
An amendment introduced by Representative Jared Polis (D-CO) to prohibit the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) from engaging in warrantless bulk data collection just passed the House tonight on a 242-183 vote. The amendment was included in the passage of the Commerce, Justice and Science (CJS) Appropriations bill. “The Drug Enforcement Administration’s secret bulk surveillance program – which came to light earlier this year more than 20 years after the program’s initiation – was a grave infringement on the rights of law-abiding citizens,” Polis said. “Though the Department of Justice temporarily suspended this program in 2013, there is nothing to stop them from picking up where they left off. My amendment to the CJS appropriations bill will prohibit the DOJ from using federal funds to do exactly that.” “As legal experts have established again and again, there is no need or justification for federal officials to violate the privacy rights of millions of law
Polis Introduces Legislation to Create Federal Guidelines to Prevent Marijuana-Impaired Driving
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today introduced the Limiting Unsafe Cannabis-Impaired Driving (LUCID) Act, which would expand the federal definition of an impaired driver to include an individual who is cognitively or physically impaired by marijuana. The LUCID Act would create incentives for states with legalized marijuana to enact laws prohibiting marijuana-impaired driving – similar to the requirements that exist relative to drunk driving. It would also provide states with comprehensive guidance to help them prevent marijuana-impaired driving using measures that are both economically feasible and scientifically sound. The LUCID Act would not mandate a specific measurement that states must use to test for marijuana-impaired driving, but it would call on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to publish recommendations based on the most up-to-date scientific research. The LUCID Act is also cosponsored by Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07). “As more and more states follo
