What was Colorado congressman Jared Polis doing with Willie Nelson?

Colorado congressman Jared Polis was hanging out with legendary country singer Willie Nelson on Tuesday.

Were they talking legalization? Debating the merits of “Red Headed Stranger” (the album) versus Red Headed Stranger (the strain)? Sharing cannabutter recipes?

Polis tweeted a selfie of he and Nelson on Tuesday afternoon, calling the singer/activist a “hemp hero.”

A pro-marijuana congressman hanging with a pro-marijuana musician isn’t all that much of a surprise, as it turns out.

“They were discussing the long overdue need to update our nation’s hemp policy,” Scott Overland, Polis’ communications director, told The Cannabist on Tuesday evening.
