washington-dc Congratulations America. Today, the D.C. Council moved one step closer to legalizing medical weed. Congress still has to vote on the bill that would allow for a set number of dispensaries in the nation’s capital and if approved, this could be just the kind of jurisdictional nightmare the country needs right now. Otherwise have fun explaining how weed is illegal under federal law, but perfectly legal in the actual jurisdiction where the federal laws are written.
