The Washington D.C. Council gave unanimous approval yesterday to an ordinance that allows medical cannabis patients from other jurisdictions to use the district’s dispensaries to purchase their medicine.
“Non-residents are not permitted to purchase medical marijuana under current law”, states a committee report from September. “This results in a complete barrier to access for non-residents that doesn’t exist for other medication”.
The ordinance to change this received not a single “No” vote Tuesday, which was its final vote. It’s expected to be quickly signed into law by Mayor Muriel Bowser.
