Washington D.C. Legalizes Cannabis

Votersdc in Washington D.C. – the U.S. Capitol – have legalized cannabis, approving Initiative 71 with 69% of the vote.

Initiative 71, which will take effect after a 60-day congressional review period, will legalize the possession and use of up to two ounces of cannabis for those 21 and older, going a step further than the recent City Council-enacted decriminalization of up to an ounce. The new law will also allow for the private cultivation of up to six cannabis plants.
