Vowing to pursue marijuana legalization on a federal level, Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.)praised the regulation of marijuana in Colorado after the first legal sales of recreational pot began in the state on Wednesday.

“By regulating marijuana like alcohol, Colorado voters hope to reduce crime and keep marijuana away from kids,” Polis said in a Jan. 1 statement. “I applaud Colorado’s efforts to implement the will of the voters and will continue my work to pass H.R. 499 to regulate marijuana like alcohol federally.”
