Colorado Representative Jared Polis invites President Obama, Harry Reid on pot dispensary, grow tour

WASHINGTON - Colorado congressman Jared Polis (D) is inviting President Barack Obama and House Majority Leader Harry Reid to Denver for a pot tour.

Polis said he sent the letter so Obama and Reid could see how the state’s new marijuana regulations are being successfully implemented.

"I would like to extend an invitation to both of you to visit Colorado and join me to visit a legal dispensary and grow operation to see how the law is being implemented in the state," Polis wrote in the letter. "I am confident that when you see Colorado’s work to implement the law while protecting children and raising revenue for our schools firsthand, we can begin to make similar efforts on a federal level."

Polis said the invitation comes after comments by both the president and Reid which suggest shifting positions on the relative dangers and regulation of marijuana.
