The White House Becomes The Green House At Midnight

An NBC Washington is reporting here, that Washington, DC will go full legal on marijuana tonight at midnight.  That is of course, unless Congress steps in to change that.

The main points of the new state law, not federal by the way, are as follows according to NBC Washington.


The law -- which was approved by voters last fall -- will permit possession of small amounts of marijuana by those ages 21 or older, with consumption allowed only in private homes and space. The card includes the following points:


  • Those ages 21 or older can possess up to two ounces of marijuana, grow up to six cannabis plants at home (with no more than three mature), or give away up to one ounce of marijuana to someone else (who also must be at least 21 years old).
  • Those younger than 21 cannot possess any amount of marijuana. Any such marijuana can be seized by an officer.
  • You can be arrested if you smoke or consume marijuana in public, have more than 2 ounces, or sell any amount of marijuana.
  • Those who drive while impaired or under the influence of marijuana will be prosecuted.
  • Under federal law, federal law enforcement officers may arrest anyone in the District for possession of any amount of marijuana, specifically on any federal property.



Does that mean Elizabeth Warren can have a "formal meeting" about her request for the CDC to looking into using marijuana as solution to the growing opiate and heroin problem in the USA?  Let's just say that chances for a green agreement look good after midnight!

Are you confused as to what is Federal land in DC, and what is state land?  Don't worry, you aren't alone as you will see in the video.  Let's just say it isn't quite safe to toke up on the Washington Mall's lawn just yet.
