Skip to comments.Jared Polis — a pro-pot, video-game playing congressman — tries to win over his party

Rep. Jared Polis will gladly visit a marijuana dispensary in his home state of Colorado. Hell stand in a fluorescent-lit room with hundreds of skunky plants, discuss the different types of high someone gets from Willies Wonder versus Super Lemon Haze (ones a creative upper, the other uplifting and euphoric) and ruminate on the local ban on edibles. Just dont try to take his picture in the grow room.
Its like, that could go viral, Polis says, leaving Choice Organics in Fort Collins. I dont shy away from the issue; we talk about it, whatever. But the problem is, we get so many more invitations to talk about it than other things, so it seems like thats all I talk about a lot when its really not.
His chief of staff, Dan Turrentine, chimes in: And lets be honest, the audience in D.C. is a little different than out here.
This is something new for Polis, the 39-year-old self-made millionaire member of Congress: He is starting to care what people think about him. The same guy mocked by GQ for his sartorial choices known as Congresss chief video-game enthusiast, the first member to accept bitcoin donations on the day it became legal, and a top spokesman for legalizing marijuana now wants to be taken seriously by the establishment. That doesnt mean hes about to start going along to get along. It just means hes looking for a change in style.

I would crawl on broken glass to vote against someone like that
He also is a buggery aficionado.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
That was fast!
Jared Polis is a queer commie baby killer.
He’s a democrat.
I’d have bet my lunch money that he was a registered Libertarian.
Headline should read:
Jared Polis a pro-Pol-Pot video-game playing congressman
Let’s hope he can convince his party. Get the entire Democrat apparatus stoned. They’d miss votes, appointments, and elections. It would be heaven.
In other words, he's a typical Democrat.
Wave his anti-gun history all over the place. Signs, bumper stickers, etc.
I’ll never understand how a twink’s stool-encrusted anus is preferable to a woman for these dudes.
That is the succinct way of putting it. lol
“Jared Polis is a queer commie baby killer.
In other words, he’s a typical Democrat. “
No, he’s “progressive caucus” that means he’s an actual card carrying communist.
Probably was molested as a kid, that will really mess with the wiring in the brain.
Distinction without a difference.
