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: Congress needs to carry out a thoughtful, honest discussion about President Trump's fitness to serve
Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., moved to begin impeachment proceedings of President Donald Trump today, voting against tabling an impeachment resolution by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas.  “There are serious accusations against President Trump of obstruction of justice and collusion with a foreign government, and I find these accusations credible,” said Polis.  “President Donald Trump has continually demonstrated that he lacks the integrity to occupy the office of the President of the United States.  Congress needs to carry out a thoughtful, honest discussion about President Trump's fitness to serve and start the process to determine the truth.  If guilty, every day we allow President Trump to obstruct justice, as he has possibly done in Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation, we weaken our national security.  It is time we begin an open, honest, objective, and comprehensive discussion on the President’s fitness to serve as our Commander in Chief.” The r
Polis defends against attempt to undercut state gun safety laws
Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., rejected Republican attempts to move forward the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, legislation championed by the National Rifle Association (NRA).  Under this bill, a person who is barred from buying a gun in one state can travel to another state with weaker gun laws, receive a permit, and carry that gun legally anywhere he wants, even in the state where he was originally refused a permit. “Colorado already has reciprocal concealed carry agreements with 33 other states that have high standards for background checks. After the Columbine shooting, Coloradans chose to enact sensible gun safety laws, voting to close the gun show loophole.  The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act undercuts states’ rights and gun safety laws that other states have adopted,” said Polis.  “Congress needs to take meaningful action, and at the bare minimum, we shouldn’t undermine states that have been brave enough to address gun violence in the absence of fede
Parents, educators, school districts, nonprofits, Coloradans rally around Polis’s bill to fully fund special education
Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., introduced legislation today to provide teachers with the resources they need to effectively serve students with disabilities.  The Defending Special Education Students and Families Act fully funds the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA).   Congress introduced IDEA in 1975 and committed to contributing 40 percent of the additional costs of educating students with disabilities, sharing the cost with states and districts.  Today, 42 years later, the federal government covers less than 16 percent of those costs.  The shortfall has dramatically impacted school budgets, causing some districts to cut or underpay teachers.  In Colorado, districts scramble to cover 70 percent of the costs of special education on average. “Education is the single best investment we can make in our future, but for decades we have underfunded our public schools,” said Polis.  “Our failure to fully fund special education h
Polis calls for new public comment period on net neutrality
Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., gave the following statement regarding recent findings that over half of net neutrality comments submitted to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) during its public comment period were fake.  During the comment period, which ran from April 27 – Aug. 30, members of the public could formally weigh in on net neutrality rules. The FCC is now planning to rollback rules that protect net neutrality in a meeting scheduled for Dec. 14. “In light of this major revelation that 57 percent of the 22 million public comments on net neutrality contained false information, I am calling upon the FCC to start a new public comment process before moving forward, so at least we know that the FCC didn’t base their decision on input from bots and fake accounts,” said Polis. As an entrepreneur and creator of several successful Internet start-ups, Polis has long been an ardent supporter of an open Internet. He has been instrumental in stopping legislation li
