District of Columbia Looking To Legalize Marijuana

Today in Washington, DC, At Large City Councilman David Grosso (I) will introduce legislation before the District of Columbia City Council that seeks to eliminate all criminal and civil penalties for possessing small amounts of cannabis by adults over the age of 21, provide the DC Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration with the authority to license and regulate the production and taxable sale of cannabis, and to seal the criminal records for those previously charged with cannabis-related crimes.norml_remember_prohibition_

The introduction of this legislation proceeds a summer of an ACLU report on the disproportionate number of minorities arrested in the highest in the country per capita cannabis arrest region, a DPA/MPP-funded survey of DC residents supporting legalizing cannabis at 60%, the introduction of a cannabis decriminalization bill by Councilman Tommy Wells (which ten of twelve council members have co-signed) and finally with the Department of Justice memo issued a few weeks ago allowing states greater policy making autonomy regarding developing tolerant and forward-looking cannabis policies at the state level.

  1. Given the enormous benefits of the medical side of marijuana, having it remain illegal is a crime against humanity.

  2. WOO HOO! As my dad said, that’s the center of the country! If this can’t get passed with 60% of the population supporting it (and climbing every day), we can officially stop calling ourselves a democracy and start the revolution.

    Though I look forward to even more momentum on legalization now that the fed has decided it’s not going to jump in and enforce in the states. I think that may be the main thing that has slowed the momentum at all–some people, even those who support legalization in spirit, were worried about what the fed would do, and for that reason they opposed it in practice out of fear. Without the threat of the fed over our heads, I’m looking forward to a veritable rainstorm of falling dominoes! And where better to start this than DC!


  3. Please people do not need to go to prison and now a felon! Hard working man you will ever 52 and now a l felon ! Master plumber! Now he caint even vote , gets payed way less caint find a place to rent felon never committed a crime in hi life . But he went to prison for growing weed for his wife who had cancer PLEASE don’t send no one to prison any more .he has 3 children and 2 grand children ! FOR wanting to save his wife so sad

  4. If the capital of the United States becomes legal it will mean a lot for the rest of the country. I assume that the decision makers are taking that into consideration.

  5. My question is: Will Congress step in to thwart it like they did initially when DC legalized MMJ?

    Bob Barr and his ilk of the time prevented it by blocking the counting of the votes for the ballot initiative and then basically disallowing any funding whatsoever be used in implementing it.

    That was Initiative 59 back in 1998. They held it up that way for 15 years, give or take a few months. It wasn’t until about July of 2013 that the obstacles were removed, and Capital City Care opened its doors.

    I hope this won’t be limited to citizens of the District of Columbia. Adults from the states and tourists from any country should be able to enjoy the freedom to use cannabis responsibly just as people have done for so long in Amsterdam.

    OBW, Berlin’s Kreuzberg district is trying to make cannabis coffeeshops legal there. It sure would be nice to see international progress. If DC does it, other countries ought to follow suit.

  6. If the drug laws were acctually intended to do the public any good why don’t they have laws against people being high on anything in public, and if someone reports something like that why dont they require those people to go to rehab and take drug tests instead of jail. If the government truly intented to benifit society thats what they would do. instead they don’t they send people to jail where they meet other criminals and get more bad ideas than before. after the government kid naps you lets you go after labeling you as a criminal and stealing future job opporunities what is a broke person to do that just got out of jail and can barely get a job at mcdoncals. whats stopping him from going back to drugs, nothing?? he gets back on drugs a cop that arrested him last time kid naps him again, but its “okay” because he’s just doing his job which is kidnapping you and locking you up and if you last till you get out he’s hoping that you get back on drugs so he can arrest you again and make more a arrests to add to his record and get more promotions and bonus. but to get his promotion and keep his job he has to steal from you and kid nap you and take your ability to get a job away, and charge the tax payers for all of the costs of all of this. most importantly, the extended stay at the at least 40000 per inmate a year hotel known as jail.

    The governments motive is money. Make the most money arrest the most people take the most money from them and set them up to fail in life and arrest them all over again.

    If the motive wasn’t money the government would focus on stoping drug users from using drugs not arresting them and sending them to jail where he can find 10 guys that all know where to get pounds of weed.

    If the government loses money by sending less drug users to hotel jail which costs tax payers 100 bucks a day per person in jail at least. Cops lose money judges lose money all these people that have been making money for years and years off of stealing from people that grow of sells weed and taking thier profits and cops pocketing their money and taking their freedom away. yet alchol is sold everywhere.

    Cops, judges, everyone involved with the criminal justice system have no intrest in helping you do better. thats why they don’t care about your privacy when it comes to your criminal history, and make it impossible to get a job. thats why they dont care if you get out of jail just to get arrested again, thats accutally what makes them richer.

    Weed should not be illegal. Nor should taking peoples weed and money they made from selling something that is less harmful than something sold everywhere everyday alcohol.

    Nor should the government lock people up and give them a sentence of lifetime poverty associated with a criminal record and no good job oppourtunities.

    Nor should the government lock people up that haven’t been able to get a job because of their marijauana sales record and go back to selling something less harmful than alcohol.

    If the criminal justice system wasn’t a business. People wouldn’t be serving Minimum mandatory life time marijuana jail sentences. But it is and without the money charged to the tax payers for the life time in jail alot of people wouldn’t have jobs or pensions.

    The criminal justice system is not about right or wrong it is about money.

  7. Some cops and judges and other people may care about drug users getting better but the criminal justice system doesn’t sets em up to fail after giving them a life sentence of poverty associated with being arrested labeled a crimnal. The system is a business it wants your money. It wants to fill up jails with nonviolent offenders and keep them thier for as long as possible and make at 100,000s of thousands of dollars of each inmate. It doesnt care about you’re life after jail

  8. This is huge. Update please as soon as there is any info with the projected success, or even responses from DC on proposed bill.

  9. This is so wonderful! If DC can legalize cannibis then it won’t be long before this prohibition nightmare is over. Poor Sabet,they will have to him in a straight jacket.

  10. Great news I wish Florida would stop dragging their feet on this issue they barely are even in the phases of medicinal legalization much less recreational by the time Florida gets off the high horse it will be like 2020 the south is soooooo slow in everything I miss the Tri-State

  11. I sense we’re near that tipping point and the dominos will fall! Even Ohio is starting to show signs of getting on the train with a legalization bill being discussed in state senate. wow. Ten years ago who’d have believed we’d be at this point. Now THIS is a change I can believe in!

  12. Interesting that this proposal mentions those who have been previously incarcerated for cannabis related ‘crimes’. This is very promising if the trend continues – there are many people serving very long sentences for nothing more than growing, selling or possessing cannabis.

  13. According to wiki,

    “As permitted by the U.S. Constitution, the District is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States Congress and is therefore not a part of any U.S. state.”

    This being the case,
    and as I believe I understand the way it works, congress has the power to nationally legalize cannabis.

    SO: Does this mean that DC is actually the largest domino on the table?
    (Perhaps NY, CA, TX, etc. have their aspects)

    IF Congress has 100% say there,
    and if it becomes legal-
    does this not mean that it will be
    THE ULTIMATE milestone
    because if ‘The District’ legalizes it
    and Federal Law trumps state law-
    would not the Feds have to define it as legal???

  14. @Bobby:

    I hear you on most of that, but I have to correct one thing I’m hearing. Drug testing is notoriously unreliable and inaccurate (up to 30% of positive drug tests are false positives). Also, drug testing does not reduce drug use, unless you want to count marijuana. The thing is, drug testing does NOT test for the actual drug or the impairment causing molecule. It tests for after-results of your body metabolyzing a substance (metabolytes)–and many of the metabolytes for various illicit drugs are shared by both legal OTC drugs and foods. The metabolytes for MJ can be detected from one month to three months afterward, while the hard drugs are flushed out of the body, metabolytes and all, within a few days tops (some of them within 24-48 hours).

    As a result of all this, drug testing actually drives up the usage rate for hard drugs, as people who would otherwise have been using MJ will switch to the harder and more dangerous drugs that have a narrow detection time. Drug testing lowers off-the-clock MJ use, but increases the use of things like cocaine and heroine. This has been shown in multiple recent studies. One was recently featured on this very site.

    And don’t forget our problem in this country regarding privatized prisons. We’re privatizing everything, and that makes everything go down the tubes. In this case, we have private for-profit prisons that are guaranteed a certain number of inmates by our government–and the only way they can keep that going is to make as many things illegal as possible, regardless of how harmful or dangerous or damaging they may or may not be. Without marijuana prohibition, many of these leeches would have to get real jobs, and so there is another group of Drug War profiteers that is fighting hard to maintain their Prohibition money train. (See, I’m aware of more Drug War profiteers besides drug testing companies! ;D)

    @Cat Cassie: Sabet in a straight jacket, in a rubber room, ranting and drooling because his precious prohibition is no more. Now THAT is an image that will have me smiling for some time to come! If we could work in some part where we’re outside his rubber room taunting him into a frothing rage (perhaps by lighting up, tee hee), it would be perfect.


  15. Obama is not a stoner, or pothead. He never was. What he was when in the choom gang is a narcissitic poser. He just doesn’t get it and didn’t back in the day, he was just trying to fit in with a bunch of stoners. A manipulation of their emotions? In many ways, narcissits maintain their self worth by controlling situations and people around them via manipulation. And since he had to compete with marijuana for some of their attention, it isn’t exactly his favorite material either. Hence why Obama doesn’t support legalization. It generally makes people more introspective, and this is not something people with certain negative personalities traits can enjoy. When they smoke up, all their little lies come back to haunt them and they cannot relax.

  16. re: Dave Evans

    “Obama is not a stoner…”

    Your comment is an interesting take on it.
    Mine is different…

    I think obama was a pothead,
    and a total bogart,
    not only that if his track record stays true-
    he hardly put in on that shit.

    I think it is a scenario where he toked,
    and, like many of us, was still able to achieve. He was also fortunate to have a life setting that allowed him to go to Harvard.

    He got into politics and wasn’t about to let his interest in cannabis become visible to others.

    (You know damn well that the police, and white house security aren’t about to do shit if they found him toking – except merely get him the best, at no risk to himself and his reputation.)

    He has ridden his celebrity status all the way to a 2nd term as leader of this country.
    And, even now, on the 3nd half of his presidency when he has nothing-to-lose* by voicing his perception and experience with cannabis – yet he still holds back.
    Of all the major travesties our country has inflicted upon its own people, the prohibition of cannabis has got to be in the top 10. AND IT COSTS A SHITLOAD TO MAINTAIN?!

    Yet he is silent.

    I don’t think its because he isn’t a pothead-
    I think its because we don’t F’ing matter to him.

    *(assuming he isn’t going to fight for a ‘3rd term’)

  17. @Sherri, Do you proofread your post’s? @Emmanuel, I agree with you, Sherri, needs some basic english lessons. but so dont we all.

  18. I hope Maryland is getting a medical dispensary soon. Can you go to another state where it is legal and purchase cannabis locally, I have a prescription for my eyes, for glaucoma.

  19. If the majority rules, then this should be over.Or we need to vote in only politicians in favor of legalization. If they don’t run their campaign showing they want legalization they don’t get voted in.

  20. @Mark – I have refused to vote for anyone who does not favor ending marijuana prohibition rhe last 4 times I voted.

    I highly encourage everyone else out there to start doing likewise. Together we can stop the facists!

  21. @demonhype
    I cannot agree with you more. I had the very thought just before coming across your posts about drug testing! There is a considerable amount of evidence that, thinking logically, would lead to removing cannabis from the test panel.

    I know there’s a poll going on to get Normal.org on television commercial by voting here https://www.smallbusinessbiggame.com/dc/NORML/385426 but can you imagine if we pushed the thought that with Cannabis removed from the drug panel the motivation of the economy would restructure thousandfold?

  22. Passerby, yes on having legalization include removing cannabis from the drug testing repertoire, though I still resent the indignity of testing. I wonder how much this drug testing has done for workplace safety anyway, really.

  23. @fireweed

    I have the same accord with drug testing as you. I don’t mind you doing with your body as it does not affect mine, however with the direction that is laid out for marijuana policy is that it is less harmful for us than alcohol, cigarettes, etc.

    Considering workplace safety, it relies on the workers consciousness to effectively do their work and focus in an emergency situation. To the discretion of the employer, it has eased their worry. The employee, however, has more worry I.e. the actual damn economy!

  24. Wow the facts are coming out thanks to the young people that are honest. To many Boomers are HYPOCRITES. We tried and some lied about using it.

    As a Parent I never smoked in front of my son. I did take time to point out a Friend that was paralyzed waist down form a sniper in Vietnam. His only relief from severe leg spasms was MJ. R.I.P.-Wayne C. Died from oxycontin use as he was afraid to smoke around his kids.

  25. @Fireweed: In fact, drug testing has done nothing for workplace safety. In fact, it actually correlates with higher cocaine usage in workers, because as I said above, cocaine and all other hard drugs have such a narrow detection time it’s nearly impossible to catch them even with random. Plus, it has been shown conclusively to lower workplace productivity–probably because of that cocaine-increasing characteristic, but also because it lowers workplace morale. Employees who feel trusted, valued and respected do better work than employees who are kept under constant surveillance even in their own bodies and, by extension, their own homes. Everything you eat or drink, every prescription or OTC drug you take, could get you fired for a false positive (which account for up to 30% of drug test positives).

    Also, if marijuana is removed from drug testing, it will shut down the drug testing industry. 98% of positives are for marijuana due to the nature of drug testing that I laid out above. Without marijuana dishonestly padding their numbers, they won’t have the statistics to justify their service anymore.

    @ passerbuy: I do think that legalization of MJ and the eventual elimination of it from drug testing will result in a restructuring of economy! So much of our economy has become dependent on the Failed Drug War though, so that was inevitable. But I’m having a hard time following you. On one hand, it sounds like you agree with me about drug testing being wrong and invasive, but on the other hand it sounds like you still want to support drug testing because of the illusion of security it affords the employer and because of the economy. Neither is adequate to support drug testing.

    If I’m wrong, just ignore the following, but I do want to spell it out for any lurkers who do think this way and might not be aware:

    First of all, the employer’s illusion of security is just that–an illusion–and in reality (see above) it actually makes their workplace less safe by driving their workers from MJ to much stronger and more addictive and potentially dangerous drugs. In that, drug testing is not just some kind of harmless security theater, it actively makes these places less productive and less safe–and because of that, drug testing is a scam being pulled on insecure and uninformed employers. Just because a con man makes a little old lady feel good or special while he bilks her out of her life savings isn’t a reason not to bust the guy.

    (A bit OT, but it still amazes me how little scientific evidence employers have used to bulldoze drug testing into their workplaces. If it was anything else, they’d want strong evidence of efficacy, if it was an investment they’d want some kind of reputable research behind it, but when it involves their workers they just jump on any invasive demeaning thing they are told will keep their livestock…I mean, employees…in line. Probably because they get tax breaks and kick backs from the government to drug test their employees (like I said, subcontracting 4th Amendment violations) and because you and I and the American worker are the only ones paying the price (both in our taxes paying for it, and in our civil rights being eliminated).)

    Also a part of the illusion the employer has about drug testing is the assumption you just brought up, about how they want their workers to be focused and not high on the job. Drug testing does not ensure that. It does not test for impairment, but for after-effects of having taken a drug and so cannot be used to pinpoint when someone was actually high. With marijuana being illegal, this means American employers are conducting criminal investigations on their employees without cause or warrant of any kind, something even the police are not supposed to do. The Drug Warriors have used drug testing to subcontract civil rights violations off onto the private sector because the cops can’t mass-search the population themselves due to the Fourth Amendment (so far, that is). But with marijuana legal, it will still amount to them policing the private lives of their employees to their own whims.

    And just because someone uses a substance does not mean they will use it at work or come to work under its influence. If workplace safety was really a concern, we would all have to take a breathalzyer before clocking in, because the negative effects of alcohol abuse in the workplace dwarfs the negative effects of all illicit drugs combined. Workplace safety is a popular excuse, but it was never the actual reason for drug testing. The real reason for drug testing, as it was emphasized early on, was to force drug users to stop using drugs by making drug users unemployable. As I said, using American employers as a strongarm of the police force, violating the American citizens in ways the cops cannot yet violate us.

    Not to mention that drug testing allows your employer a much broader window into your private life and health besides whether you are using drugs. Drug testing has been used, for example, by the Washington Police to find out which female employees were pregnant. If they got caught doing that once, do you think they’re not doing it now, using drug test specimens to filter out people with inconvenient health conditions that they don’t want on their insurance? That is probably why insurance companies really insist on drug testing, since it was conclusively proven to not work. It’s a great loophole around the Americans with Disabilities Act. I truly believe that when their files are opened after the Drug War ends we are going to find one heck of a lot of corruption along those lines.

    As for the economy, that is no reason to keep marijuana illegal OR maintain the drug testing culture. Slavery was once crucial to the American economy–it was also morally indefensible. The economy will adjust. Most of those people in drug testing probably have valuable lab training and experience, and can find other work easily. In the meantime, they are earning their living depriving the rest of us of our bodily privacy rights and our autonomy, and putting us all at risk of wrongful termination every day. I don’t think it’s worth keeping just so we can avoid a temporary burp in the economy.

    And yes, the employee has to worry about the economy. The employee also has to worry about losing his/her job to a false positive in this economy and being from that point on untouchable for any further employment. Or having a health problem and being unable to find other work because they can’t pass a drug test because the drug test keeps showing the employer that they are on diabetic or heart medication that would be inconvenient for the employer’s health insurance. And so on…

    Checked out the link, and I’ve done that! Still voting–and everyone should vote and get everyone you know to vote too! I’d love for NORML to get on TV! The legalization message needs to reach everyone!

  26. The problem with the system making money out of placing people in jail is, the system itself is running out of money.
    So now the system is considering other ways to make back its profits. If making *Only* small amounts of marijuana legal, will give back the system some money it’s losing, why not? But only in Small Amounts. The words are *Small Amounts*. You can still go to jail in Colorado, if you possess too much weed at a time. Same as with Washington State. They allow one once only. And you are of course, prohibited from smoking in public. The Government is slowly realizing, they are missing out on *Large* amounts of money, and they want a piece of that action. So little by little, Governments will start signing on.

    And then consider what happens around areas that has legalized small amounts. States around Colorado will probably soon start considering the same thing, to keep things under control. And of course, the money too.
    In just a few years only, probably, this will spread to all 50 states. If not in 3 years, by 2020 it will be legal to poses 1 ounce everywhere in the USA.

    So yeah, the Government is still looking out for themselves here.

  27. i may be a boomer but i am not a hypocrite!just parinoid from all the bullshit! i just turned 60! still have the belief that america can be a great country! like i’ve always believed, that those grey haired assholes f–ked us, used us, and seen us as disposable. i guess i got tired of the resentment, after living in another country. now all that’s left is the hope for our country. it’s 2% of the population that is pushing us around, spending the tax $ to spread the lies that poisin others minds. we can all see it! follow the $! our politicians use it to fight legalization, well lets just think? what does that mean boys and girls?

  28. Of course money runs the show it a Capitalist country. Corporate America cares only about profits. Our votes are just a token Gore won Baby Bush stole it in his Brothers State.

    We are just pawns in a rich mans world. When the masses get angry then these people pay attention to the populace.

    Things do change as time evolves I am 62 and smoked pot for 35 years for medicinal and recreational purposes. Then after 9/11 the Police neighbor decided to use his connections to stop me. Friends went away the dealer I was using gave me some pot laced with crap that made me sick. So no luck for 7 yrs now. Drs push narcotics at me I do not want to be a junkie.

    Civil rights are being taken away by our Corporate Police State. Change is coming and the horror caused by Nixons regime is coming to an end. Yet still sheeple follow the System like good girls and boys. Afraid to stand up to the man. I did he is the cop on the block that has me targeted by our militia and watch group.

    I am lucky I have a wive and son. He carries a badge as an investigator so he is in the middle of all this. How ironic is that?

  29. @Denny Strausser Jr: I am also a bit unsatisfied at that. But it’s a start, just like MMJ was a start. We started with MMJ, and now states with MMJ are considering legalization and have the best chance of doing so, while non MMJ states are about to legalize MMJ. States that have had MMJ for a while have been expanding the number of plants a user can have, or expanding the list of qualified conditions, or helping increase access to patients/increasing the number of dispensaries or the protections for those dispensaries. Every little bit that gets legalized shows both the populace AND the less-in-touch politicians that this substance is effectively harmless (such as the lowered rates of traffic fatalities in legalized areas, for example), soothing the unwarranted fears put in their heads by the dishonest Drug Warriors and prepping them for larger strides in the future.

    If in 3 years or at least by 2020 every state had legalized possession of 1 oz, that is going to have an incredible effect on the Drug War and all its profiteers. It is going to show conclusively, not just scientifically but to the regular joes out there, that marijuana is not a dangerous substance. It is going to acclimate even the most insane right-wing nutjob to the presence of MJ in our society and loosen or even eliminate the knee-jerk fear reaction some people have to the very idea of marijuana, much less the legalization of marijuana. It will show the societal benefits of legalization through taxation and regulation AND the de-clogging of our jails and the return to productivity of millions of citizens who would otherwise be rotting for 2-10 years for possession of a single joint. It will effectively de-fang all those anti-marijuana organizations and deprive the Drug War proponents (like Sabet or Leonhart, etc) of the ignorance and mininformation and demonization and psychological terrorism that have become their primary weapons. And in time, we will go from 50 states allowing possession of no more than 1 ounce to full legalization on the level of alcohol. It’s inevitable.

    So you’re right, it’s not really enough. But MJ should never have been made illegal to begin with, and now all we have to work with is taking those inches and turning them into miles. Eventually–inevitably–we will have full legalization across the board if we keep this up. And the dishonest Drug Warriors know this, and they are TERRIFIED! And that is SWEET!


  30. Senate oks Marijuana?
    Illinois, 19th state to legalize, as Senate oks Marijuana …

    Although unbiased to marijuana and its intentional medicinal purposes I did enjoy what the chicago tribune had to say on May 17. it is far better than to prescribe marijuana than pain releiving controlled narcotics that are highly physically addictive and have horrific and tragic side effects.

    The senate seem to adress risks by accidents, injuries and addiction but the reality is there are far more questions that need to be addressed or weighed into the determinationn right?

  31. @Demonhype,

    It’d be great if legalization throughout the states moved that quickly. I’m not quite that optimistic, but believe, nevertheless, that the dominoes of prohibition are indeed falling.

  32. Ben, Obama has never been in favor of legalization. Why do you think his Vice President is Joe Biden?

    Obama does put marijuana on the same level as alcohol, cocaine, LSD, tobacco and meth. You’re right, he doesn’t care about us. We should be kissing his ass, not complaining about how he hasn’t done anything for us.

  33. Hey Dave,
    “Ben, Obama has never been in favor of legalization. Why do you think his Vice President is Joe Biden?”

    It seems to me that he has Joe Biden as his number 2 because Joe is somewhat ‘likable’, a casual white guy, easily distracting and easily to manipulate.

    I think Joe is also there to add a dimension of ‘silly human’ into the equation,
    as careful observation of Obama reveals a very skilled liar, and a total hypocrite.

    Anyone else notice that Obamacare was not about health care? just that it was wrapped up in it, (like shit in newspaper.)

    Obama-care is about more power. The power comes in that he claimed it wasn’t a tax,
    stacks the supreme court into going for it,
    they call it a tax, and he writes notes to exclude certain organizations and businesses from having to go through with it.

    Extortion, wrapped up in healthcare.

    Look up the healthcare waivers.

    1 – Why don’t all get the option?
    2 – Why do those that don’t get the waiver have to pay a special tax?
    3 – What do those that got the waiver have to do/pay to get on the list? (behind closed door meetings.)

    And, if you buy into them ALL going away after they expire, I got a bridge to sell you.

  34. Fortunately, because of intelligent people speaking openly in favor of legalization, and because of organizations, like NORML, which help connect and direct the energies of the masses in this – things are starting to change.

    Corrupt politicians need to understand that we will not watch this joke of a drug war, the lunacy of pharma-nipulation, and this ridiculous double standard (several presidents admitting to toking [“…that was the point”, B.O.]) while others, like Charlie Sheen, Miley Cyrus, and Madonna are well-known crack-heads, coke-heads, MDMA, ‘where’s Molly?’, and ecstasy users enjoy a free ride while many of us know people behind bars, or at least much of their lives impacted or ruined because of the illegality of cannabis.

    Cannabis doesn’t blow the mind out-
    there are no ‘cannabis babies’.
    One can spot poor crack-babies, alcohol-babies, and others. The vibrant ’60s did not leave the next generation with any ability to spot who might have been a child of a stoner-
    save, they might have flagshipped Apple or something…

  35. I am happy for Wash, DC…Now, lets see what is going on with MARYLAND. Why are they dragging their FEET. Last I, looked they have stalled out…my guess, MD is waiting to see what is DC’s result goina be? Where are our MD Leaders on the subject of Mj standing NOW? All there paper work is in…what’s the hold-up? Help is on the way!

  36. I don’t think that DC legalizing MJ will have a sweeping affect of legalization across the states.. Most of the Congressmen do not live in DC. It will be more a case of.. NIMB.
