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.

Although the initiative doesn’t allow for the distribution of cannabis through cannabis retail outlets, the district’s Council is currently considering legislation to do just that.

According to district financial officials, a legalized cannabis market would be worth over $130 million annually in D.C.

    I don’t know why it isn’t legalized everywhere. It would provide substantial tax returns for the states, and give much needed funds to schools. Government will give in sooner or later… Why not just go ahead and get it done?

    need to legalize it everywhere so we can get our country out of debt.And besides all that there is a lot of other things out there that needs to be addressed other than marijuana. Marijuana has never killed anyone…and in most cases makes the world a better place to be.
