Grosso Pushing for Legal Marijuana Sales

The marijuana legalization model in Washington, DC is the only one in the country without a taxed and regulated system in which marijuana can be sold to people over 21 years old. Gifting the plant is OK, but any type of sales is prohibited. DC Councilmember David Grosso wants to change that, which is why he is renewing the push to bring legal marijuana sales to DC.

On January 10, 2017, David Grosso introduced legislation in the DC Council to establish a full tax and regulatory framework for weed legalization, which District voters approved by an overwhelming margin in 2014. The decision mirrors a similar bill Grosso submitted two years ago following the passage of full marijuana legalization by voters. Grosso acknowledges the legalization will flagrantly violate federal law and pit the DC Council against Congress, but argues repeated actions to meddle in local law by Congress have forced their hand.

 

Although the understanding and acceptance of cannabis is becoming ever-more prevalent in the country, Washington, DC has yet to see the plant brought into a regulated market. This proposal from Grosso would create numerous jobs, give people some legitimacy, and generate some tax dollars.
