2. Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo.
As part of the bipartisan effort to stop Sessions’ actions to rescind the Cole Memo, Rep. Jared Polis has banned together with many other pro-cannabis politicians to create what is now known as the Congressional Cannabis Caucus.
Joined by other weed-friendly representatives like Reps. Dana Rohrabacher and Earl Blumenauer from California and Oregon, respectively, Polis hopes to protect and promote the budding pot industry.
Part of this battle will include fighting Sessions’ actions to challenge marijuana reform.
But this group and Polis especially will be active in creating marijuana legislation that, according to Polis, covers “issues ranging from banking to tax deductions to employment issues to potential for enforcement.”
