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 Firestone home explosion investigation
Boulder, Colo.: Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., gave the following statement after learning that the April 17th Firestone home explosion was the result of an abandoned gas line that was not sealed properly.  “Avoidable.  What occurred in Firestone, while devastating, was predictable because Colorado sadly does not have adequate protections against dangerous oil and gas developments in our neighborhoods.  The days where oil and gas profits are valued more than Coloradans’ safety, property, and quality of life needs to end.  I call upon the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission to take immediate steps to protect the public and implement new standards to prevent disasters like this from happening in the future.  We cannot continue to delay local control, stricter safety standards, and greater setbacks,” Polis said.  Polis serves as Vice Chair of the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition (SEEC).  He is a champion for the environmen
Media Advisory: Polis to host first ever Marijuana Big Thinker Talks and Expo on Capitol Hill
WASHINGTON: Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., will host a series of conversations focused on the need to pass legislation that legalizes marijuana at the federal level. The Marijuana Big Thinker Talks will bring medical experts, analysts, business leaders, professional athletes, and federal, state, and local officials together to highlight the robust cannabis industry. The format for the expo will feature several panels on a variety of subjects relating to the marijuana industry. The event will take place in the Rayburn House Office Building Foyer on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. EST. "Times have changed over the past few years, and I’m thrilled to be hosting the first ever Marijuana Big Thinker Talks at the United States Capitol,” Polis said. “I hope lawmakers will use these discussions as a resource to understand the legitimacy of the cannabis industry. Now that a majority of Americans reside in a part of the country that has legalized medical or recreational cann
The Hill Op-Ed: Let’s end warrantless searches at the border
Let’s end warrantless searches at the border By Rep. Jared Polis What would you do if a law enforcement officer, without a warrant, requested that you turn over your mobile phone and password? Most of us would be alarmed given that today’s average smart phone is a portal to an abundance of our private information, often linking to health records, personal contacts, private emails,  and a bank account.  The federal government should not be allowed to demand that U.S. citizens release that information without a warrant, whether it is stored on a mobile phone or not. Nevertheless, this exact scenario happened to an American NASA engineer, an American Wall-Street Journal reporter, and a young-American couple visiting Niagara Falls, along with thousands of other American travelers. In fact, over the past two years, there has been a noticeable increase in warrantless electronic searches. U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported that it conducted over 23,000 searches of e
Civic participation swells as Polis takes action
Today marks the 115th day of the 115th Congress, and civic participation is up, as Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., takes action on Colorado-specific legislation and continues to hold the Trump administration accountable.    Compared to this time last year, Polis has received a 170 percent increase in emails, phone calls, and letters from constituents. Since January, he has hosted a town hall in Broomfield, Fort Collins, Boulder, Loveland, Nederland, Lyons, and Estes Park, and he has town halls planned in Gilpin, Summit, and Evergreen in May.   In addition, Polis has hosted more than 25 other events.  In total, he has met more than 6,000 community members face-to-face this year. Polis is making a concerted effort to be available through traditional means, like town halls -- as well as through new media, like Google Hangouts and Facebook Live.  “While partisan D.C. gridlock can be tiring, my community members are energizing.  They are why I
