Recreational Use Of Marijuana Becomes Legal In D.C.

Despite threats from Congress, D.C. Attorney General says no one will be getting arrested for legalizing marijuana within the District.

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA:  Recreational use of marijuana becomes legal in the nation’s capital Thursday.

In November, District of Columbia voters approved Initiative 71, which legalized recreational pot use. The District joins Alaska, Colorado and Washington state in making the drug legal.

As of 12:01 a.m. Thursday, people 21 and older can:

• Possess 2 ounces or less of marijuana;

• Share 1 ounce or less with another person at least 21 years old, as long as no money, goods or services change hands;

• Cultivate up to six marijuana plants, but have no more than three mature plants, in their primary home; and

• Use marijuana on private property.
