Colorado Governor Jared Polis: A Cannabis Industry Champion (Encore Episode)
NCIA’s Cannabis Industry Voice takes a look back at our featured interview with Colorado Governor Jared Polis.
We dive into his reasoning for being a vocal supporter of cannabis reform when it was still really a fringe issue. We also talk about more of Governor Jared Polis’s efforts over the years including how he Introduced the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act many times during his time in Congress.
Governor Jared Polis, born and raised in Colorado, is an entrepreneur, education leader, and public servant. Prior to becoming Governor, Polis brought medical experts, advocates, attorneys, and scientists to D.C. to legitimize cannabis legalization in the national conversation, and led the way for new market opportunities for agriculture while serving as the Congressman for Colorado’s 2nd Congressional district. From growers to producers to every strain of innovator in between, Governor Polis remains committed to ensuring that the success of Colorado’s fast-growing cannabis industry can be cultivated by all.
