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 statement on Obama Administration’s move to increase homeowner access to renewable energy
Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) released the following statement on the Obama Administration’s announcement of new guidelines for families to install renewable energy and water conservation projects in their homes.   With the updated guidelines, Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing will once again be available for all homes with mortgages issued by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). It will allow homeowners to complete energy projects immediately and pay back the cost over time through their property taxes. “Solar energy has been a tremendous success in Colorado.  It has helped homeowners save money while reducing air pollution and carbon emissions,” Polis said.  “President Obama’s action to expand solar energy financing through PACE will allow more homeowners - especially, veterans as well as low and middle income families - to put solar panels on their home and save on their electricity bills, in turn creating jobs and combating climate ch

Polis criticizes private immigration detention centers, welcomes action
Boulder, Colo. – Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) welcomed news that the Dept. of Homeland Security will review its use of private contractors to operate immigration detention centers.  Colorado has a massive, private, 1,500+ bed immigration detention facility located in Aurora, just off of I-70. The Dept. of Homeland Security’s decision follows the Department of Justice’s announcement on Aug. 18 that it will end its use of for-profit prisons. "The majority of immigrants who are subject to our immigration detention system – including many asylum seekers, women and children – are held in expensive, private facilities that filter billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded government contracts to two morally bankrupt corporations. Taxpayers are forced to pay over a hundred dollars a night per person for months on end,” said Polis. “If the use of private facilities is detrimental to our criminal justice system, as the Dept. of Justice recently determined, it follows that privat
