DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA: Despite threats from Congress, D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine says no one will be getting arrested for legalizing marijuana within the District.
“I don’t think Mayor [Muriel] Bowser, nor any member of the council, nor any civil servant member in the District of Columbia who had anything to do with the passage of the responsible Initiative 71 will be locked up, nor should they,” said Racine on NewsChannel 8’s News Talk.
The attorney general explained that the District had enacted a very limited legalization of marijuana.
“What it legalized was the use of marijuana and possession of marijuana in one’s home,” stated Racine. “It would also allow for the growing of marijuana, six plants, three of them can be mature, also in one’s home.”
