At the event, titled Spring Seed Shares, the group will be distributing over 16,000 cannabis seeds to celebrate the district’s one-month anniversary of cannabis legalization taking effect.
“Since Ballot Initiative 71 passed last November, the DC Cannabis Campaign has received many requests for cannabis seeds,” the Campaign says. “We’ve said all along, ‘ask a friend, they might have some seeds to give you.’ Still, we know that not everyone has friends who have seeds available to share.”
To address this need, the DC Cannabis Campaign is “organizing two seed shares to facilitate personal home cultivation of cannabis permitted under the new law. This will be DC residents’ opportunity to share seeds with other adults and start down the path of legally growing your own cannabis in the safety and privacy of your home.”
The first seed sharing event will take place at Libertine (2435 18th Street NW) from 5:30pm to 8:00pm on Thursday, March 26th, and the second event will take place on Saturday, March 28th from 4:20pm to 7:00pm at the DC Cannabis Campaign Headquarters (2448 Massachusetts Avenue NW).
Both events are completely free and open to the public, though you must be 21 or older with a valid ID.
