Mayor Adrian Fenty is now the next step in the District joining the other 14 states that currently allow medical marijuana to be distributed to residents, according to The Washington Times.

If approved by Fenty, Congress would have 30 days to review the bill before becoming D.C. law. As of Tuesday, D.C. Council passed the measure allowing patients with HIV/AIDS, cancer, or similar illnesses to obtain up to two ounces of medical marijuana a month pending a doctor’s recommendation.

  1. It is a start. I know some are mad that it isn’t a full legalization of weed but we will get there eventually

    The more people see this stuff and how it effects people in a non-negative way, it will be accepted more
