While Cali reels under a crush a federal interference with lawfully created state mmj dispensaries, in the heart of American politics, Washington, D.C., similar dispensaries are preparing to open. As reported in the San Francisco Chronicle, this summer, residents will be able to buy legal cannabis at dispensaries within a few miles of the White House, the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Cultivation centers are leasing space, and the city will decide who will be able to open shops by the end of March.
Washington’s law will be stricter than California’s. To purchase pot, patients must be diagnosed with HIV, cancer, glaucoma or other terminal or chronic illnesses and will be authorized to carry a maximum of 2 ounces. They won’t be allowed to smoke in public or at dispensaries.
“The DEA is based here. The drug czar’s office is based here. How is that dynamic going to work when some of these entities say marijuana is not a medicine” with lawful medical marijuana dispensaries nearby, said Allen St. Pierre, Executive Director at the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
