    'Mind if I smoke?' taking on a new meaning for D.C. hosts

    We had polished off dinner, tucked the kids into bed and cracked open a bottle of wine. That's when our guest pulled out a tiny change purse and took from it what my husband and I thought was a cigarette. It was actually a joint. "This is my nightcap," she announced, lighting up and inhaling in matter of milliseconds. "I hope you don't mind."

    My husband is not categorically opposed to marijuana. But he's not particularly keen on someone partaking in our vacation rental, with another set of renters downstairs and our children installed nearby on a blow-up mattress, so he pecked back: "That didn't sound like a question." It was an awkward moment, quickly brushed aside by our collective desire to keep an agreeable evening relatively agreeable. But it led us to wonder - just what is the current etiquette on marijuana usage?

    It turns out we're not the only ones asking. At a time when smoking marijuana is increasingly mainstream, legal and socially acceptable - a recent Quinnipiac poll showed that 51 percent of respondents believe it should be decriminalized - when and where to inhale is a question flummoxing regular smokers, part-time partakers and nonsmokers alike. After all, cannabis is now legal for recreational use in Colorado and Washington state and technically legal - although not yet legally available - for medicinal use right here in the District.   Read more>> - on this Item.

      Info on District of Columbia and Medical Cannabis 

    Washington, DC (District of Columbia) has a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW

    SUMMARY: Amendment Act B18-622 - "Legalization of Marijuana for Medical Treatment Amendment Act of 2010" -- Approved 13-0 by the Council of the District of Columbia on May 4, 2010; signed by the Mayor on May 21, 2010 | Effective: July 27, 2010 [After being signed by the Mayor, the law underwent a 30-day Congessional review period. Neither the Senate nor the House acted to stop the law, so it became effective when the review period ended.]

    D.C. Council Members enacted legislation in May 2010 authorizing the establishment of regulated medical marijuana dispensaries in the District of Columbia. On Monday, July 26, members of Congress allowed the measure to become law without federal interference. The law amends the Legalization of Marijuana for Medical Treatment Initiative, a 1998 municipal ballot measure which garnered 69 percent of the vote yet was never implemented. Until 2010, D.C. city lawmakers had been barred from instituting the measure because of a Congressional ban on the issue. Congress finally lifted the ban in 2009.

    Under the law, D.C. Health Department officials will oversee the creation of as many as eight facilities to dispense medical cannabis to authorized patients. Medical dispensaries would be limited to growing no more than 95 plants on site at any one time. Both non-profit and for-profit organizations will be eligible to operate the dispensaries.

    Qualifying D.C. patients will be able to obtain medical cannabis at these facilities, but will not be permitted under the law to grow their own medicine. Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: HIV or AIDS; glaucoma; conditions characterized by severe and persistent muscle spasms, such as multiple sclerosis; cancer; or any other condition, as determined by rulemaking, that is: "(i) chronic or long-lasting; "(ii) debilitating or interferes with the basic functions of life; and (iii) A serious medical condition for which the use of medical marijuana is beneficial: (I) That cannot be effectively treated by any ordinary medical or surgical measure; "(II) For which there is scientific evidence that the use of medical marijuana is likely to be significantly less addictive than the ordinary medical treatment for that condition. The maximum amount of medical marijuana that any qualifying patient may possess at any moment is 2 ounces of dried medical marijuana, though this limit is subject to revision by the Mayor.

    A separate provision enacted as part of the 2011 D.C. budget calls for the retail sales of medical cannabis to be subject to the District’s six percent sales tax rate. Low-income will be allowed to purchase medical marijuana at a greatly reduced cost under the plan. It will likely be several months before Health officials establish a patient registry and/or begin accepting applications from the public to operate the City’s medical marijuana production and distribution centers.

    Approved Conditions:   HIV, AIDS, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, cancer, other conditions that are chronic, long-lasting, debilitating, or that interfere with the basic functions of life, serious medical conditions for which the use of medical marijuana is beneficial, patients undergoing treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

    Possession/Cultivation: The maximum amount of medical marijuana that any qualifying patient or caregiver may possess at any moment is two ounces of dried medical marijuana. The Mayor may increase the quantity of dried medical marijuana that may be possessed up to four ounces; and shall decide limits on medical marijuana of a form other than dried.

    Amendment(s):   On Apr. 14, 2011, Mayor Vincent C. Gray announced the adoption of an emergency amendment (450 KB) to title 22 of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (DCMR), which added a new subtitle C entitled "Medical Marijuana." The emergency amendment "will set forth the process and procedure" for patients, caregivers, physicians, and dispensaries, and "implement the provisions of the Act that must be addressed at the onset to enable the Department to administer the program." The final rulemaking (800 KB) was posted online on Jan. 3, 2012.

    QUALIFYING CONDITIONS:   Any debilitating condition as recommended by a DC licensed doctor

    PATIENT POSSESSION LIMITS:   Two ounces

    HOME CULTIVATION:   No

    STATE-LICENSED DISPENSARIES ALLOWED:   Yes, medical dispensaries may grow up to 500 plants on site at any one time. Both non-profit and for-profit organizations are eligible to operate the dispensaries.

    STATE-LICENSED DISPENSARIES OPERATIONAL:   Yes

    CAREGIVERS:   Yes, a caregiver is a person designated by a qualifying patient as the person authorized to possess, obtain from a dispensary, dispense, and assist in the administration of medical marijuana. The caregiver must be 18 years of age or older. The caregiver must be registered with the Department as the qualifying patient's caregiver. A caregiver may only serve one qualifying patient at a time.

    Application information;

    Registration:   Mandatory

    Fee(s);   Patient Registry Fee: $100 initial or renewal fee /$25 for low income patients

The first dispensary, Capital City Care, was licensed in Apr. 2013.

    RECIPROCITY: Accepts other states' registry ID cards? - No; The medical use provisions in the District of Columbia do not include reciprocity provisions protecting visitors from other medical use states.

    Tell everybody else by Letters-to-the-Editor, displaying signage at street corners and over-passes (wear trenchcoat, fedora and sunglasses if afraid of exposure), and/or anonymously leaving literature and posting on-line at places where people are likely to find it. Coffeeshops are good places to leave printed material and you can go to the websites of the local newspapers to post items as well. More ideas and supporting tools via the links below.

    Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States Places that have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Multiple places have decriminalized non-medical cannabis in the United States; however, cannabis is illegal under federal law. Gonzales v. Raich (2005) held in a 6-3 decision that the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution allowed the federal government to ban the use of cannabis, including medical use even if local laws allow it. Most places that have decriminalized cannabis have civil fines, drug education, or drug treatment in place of incarceration and/or criminal charges for possession of small amounts of cannabis, or have made various cannabis offenses the lowest priority for law enforcement.

      LEGISLATION, Action Items and related Resources  

    District of Columbia, Legislation - DrugPolicy.org Reform in Washington, DC | Although residents of DC have advocated marijuana policy reform and harm reduction, their efforts have been thwarted by Congressional interference. In 1998 the DC electorate voted on Initiative 59, a measure that would have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes in the District. Before the ballot count could be released, Rep. Bob Barr (R-Ga.) sponsored a rider on the DC appropriations bill that banned the drug's use for medicinal purposes and prevented the use of public funds to put this issue on the ballot again. After proponents of the bill went to court, election officials confirmed a year later that 69% of district voters had approved Initiative 59, but their mandate had been silenced. The "Barr Amendment", which prohibits the city from ever lowering or eliminating penalties for use of Schedule I drugs like marijuana and Ecstasy - even for medical use - was challenged but stood on appeal in federal court. The DC Appropriations Act has also been used as a vehicle to restrict syringe exchange. Although DC has the highest AIDS rate per 100,000 population in the United States - a rate that is 12 times the national average - and increasing the availability of sterile syringes curtails transmission of HIV/AIDS, Congress last year renewed prohibitions on local funding for DC's clean needle exchange program. Virginia Senator George Allen, who sponsored the Senate amendment to the bill, commented, "Giving a drug addict a clean needle is like giving an alcoholic a clean flask. It just doesn't make any sense".

    In November of 2002, DC voted on Measure 62, a "treatment instead of incarceration" initiative similar to those approved by voters in Arizona (1996) and California (2000). An overwhelming 78% of voters in DC voted for the measure. Sponsored by the Alliance and the Campaign for New Drug Policies, Measure 62 would provide a comprehensive treatment program instead of jail time for people charged with illegal possession or use of any Schedule II (or below) controlled substance (most notably cocaine). The Measure is now stalled in court because of a challenge by DC Mayor Anthony Williams. The mayor incorrectly argues that Measure 62 allocates funds to support drug treatment. (Under DC law, ballot initiatives cannot allocate funds.) In reality, Measure 62 gives the District the option of funding treatment while keeping certain offenders out of prison if treatment slots are not available. Besides defending Measure 62 in court, DPA will continue to outline how treatment instead of incarceration can become a successful model in Washington, DC. ...

    District of Columbia, News - Time running out for council to consider improvements to medical marijuana program Time running out for council to consider improvements to medical marijuana program - Last update: August 15, 2016 | The D.C. Council is considering two bills that would make important improvements to the medical marijuana program. B21-0210 would extend legal protections to patients who live in other states, which is especially important given how many people visit D.C. or move throughout D.C., Maryland and Virginia. In addition, Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania all give protections to patients but do not yet have in-state access to medical cannabis, so those patients could benefit by having access to D.C.’s program. Meanwhile, B21-0192 would require testing of medical marijuana, which is important for patient safety and already required in many other states. Despite widespread support and favorable reports from the council’s Health Committee, both of these bills are stuck in the Judiciary Committee; you can urge the committee members to move these bills forward this year. If they are not scheduled soon, they cannot be passed in this session.

    Congress continues blocking sensible regulation in D.C. | In November 2014, D.C. voters overwhelmingly approved Initiative 71, which legalized the limited possession and cultivation of limited amounts of marijuana by adults who are 21 and older. It made no provision for non-medical sales and does not apply on federal property, including the national Mall and Interstate 295. For those under 21, it left in place the decriminalization law, which imposes a $25 civil fine. Councilmembers Grosso, Orange, Evans, and Nadeau have sponsored legislation to create the regulatory framework necessary for a responsible marijuana industry. The “Marijuana Legalization and Regulation Act of 2015,” B21-0023, would allow the city to register and regulate marijuana cultivators, product manufacturers, retail stores, and testing labs and to impose taxes on the sale of marijuana to adults 21 and older.

    Unfortunately, Congress attached a “rider” to an appropriations bill that blocked the council from spending any money to enact a law that would reduce penalties associated with the use, possession, or sale of marijuana. This rider is set to expire on September 30, 2016. In addition, some members of Congress have added an even more restrictive rider to the House’s FY2017 budget, but it has not passed the Senate, and MPP is working hard to ensure that it does not do so.

    Elections may bring change to D.C. Council’s positions on marijuana policy | The most recent council vote on marijuana policy was on the social use ban, which effectively bans the consumption of marijuana anywhere outside a private home. That vote was 7-6 in favor of the ban. But, two of the councilmembers who supported the ban lost in the Democratic primary election in June. Their successful challengers are expected to be more willing to support sensible reforms to D.C.’s marijuana policies. MPP issued a voter guide for the primary election and also co-hosted a forum on marijuana policy with several of the candidates. We are in the process of updating the voter guide for the general election. >>   Visit - http://www.mpp.org/states/district-of-columbia/

    Marijuana Likely To Be Decriminalized in D.C.

    Before long, smoking a joint in the nation’s capital might get you in even less trouble than parking on the wrong side of the street on street-cleaning day. Ten of 13 members of the D.C. Council and Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) have endorsed a plan to make small-time marijuana possession a civil rather than a criminal offense. That means recreational cannabis users wouldn’t face arrest, charges or jail time — any of which can destroy their lives — as long as they aren’t caught with more than an ounce of the drug. Instead, they would have to pay a fine, perhaps as low as $25. (The mayor also wants criminal penalties to remain for anyone caught using it in public.) Much of the debate over the idea has focused on an American Civil Liberties Union report that suggests that the District and many other jurisdictions enforce their anti-marijuana laws unfairly, disproportionately arresting African American suspects. On these pages, Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier pushed back, insisting that factors such as a geographic concentration of tips about marijuana users, not biased policing, are responsible for the city’s arrest figures. That debate does not need to be resolved to conclude that maintaining criminal penalties for small-time users of any race doesn’t make sense.   Read more>> - on this Item.


    District of Columbia, News - DC Council Passes Medical Marijuana Law DC Council Passes Medical Marijuana Law - By: Jon Walker Tuesday May 4, 2010 | FDL Action - Earlier today, the Washington, DC City Council voted unanimously in favor of medical marijuana. The bill will now go to Mayor Adrian Fenty’s desk, where he is expect to sign it. This will add DC to the long list of states that have already approved the use of cannabis for medical purposes. Medical marijuana has been a long time in coming to the District. Over a decade ago, the residents of the city voted overwhelmingly in favor of a medical marijuana ballot initiative, but DC was stopped from enacting the change by Congress. It is possible that DC will soon be joined by its neighbor Maryland in legalizing the use of cannabis for those suffering from serious medical conditions. Similarly, South Dakota has become the first state this year to certify a medical marijuana ballot initiative; it will appear before the voters in November. A previous ballot measure there was barely defeated in 2006 with 47.7% in favor, and 52.3% against. ... Visit: http://fdlaction.firedoglake.com/2010/05/04/dc-council-passes-medical-marijuana-law/

    District of Columbia, News - Washington D.C. Legalizes Medical Marijuana Washington D.C. Legalizes Medical Marijuana By Steve Elliott ~alapoet~ in Legislation, Medical Tuesday, May. 4 2010 | The D.C. Council on Tuesday approved amendments to a medical marijuana law first passed in 1998 by 69 percent of District voters. Congress had blocked implementation of Initiative 59 for more than a decade, until it lifted its ban last year. With Tuesday's vote, the District of Columbia joins the 14 states across the country which already allow qualified patients to use medical marijuana without fear of arrest. "Today marks a long overdue victory for D.C. voters and potentially thousands of chronically ill residents who will benefit from legal access to medical marijuana," said Karen O'Keefe, director of state policies for the Marijuana Policy Project. "It has taken nearly 12 years, but the District will at last have a law that recognizes the mounting scientific consensus that, for many conditions, marijuana can be safe and effective medicine," O'Keefe said. "A well-working medical marijuana program in the nation's capital will also provide members of Congress who have never seen such programs up close with a unique opportunity to do so," O'Keefe said. "Once they see for themselves that these laws do nothing but provide compassionate care for seriously ill patients, hopefully they will understand the need to create a federal policy that no longer criminalizes patients in any state who could benefit from this legitimate treatment option." ...

    District of Columbia, News - Medical Marijuana Finally Heads for D.C. Medical Marijuana Finally Heads for D.C. By Sam Jewler Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2010 | It has been years in the making, derailed by Congress three times in about as many years, but medicinal marijuana could soon be heading to the nation's capital. In 1998, voters in Washington put themselves near the forefront of the budding medical-marijuana movement when they voted nearly 7 to 3 for doctor-prescribed dope — a greater majority than those in any of the other eight statewide ballot initiatives that have passed around the country. (Watch a video about medical-marijuana home delivery.) But no celebratory smoke-outs have followed — not yet, at least. Instead, poll workers spent that election night obscuring the results of the vote, in deference to a last-minute congressional amendment pulling funds from D.C. for the processing of any drug-legalization initiative. (Ballots had been printed prior to the ban, but the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics decided that to follow the intent of the law it had to withhold the results after the votes had been cast.) "I know of no case where a federal entity has told another entity they cannot even announce the results," says WTOP analyst Mark Plotkin. "We're not even talking about the implementation of the law." Twelve years later, the political landscape appears to be profoundly changed. The sponsor of the 1998 congressional ban, Bob Barr, has gone from a drug hawk to a libertarian, legalize-it presidential candidate — even lobbying against the law he once wrote. Fourteen states have legalized medical marijuana in the 14 years since California became the first to do so; several more are working on legislation now. In December 2009, a Congress dominated by Democrats quietly lifted the Barr Amendment, giving the city an opportunity to enact its old dope law.

    District of Columbia, News - Washington, D.C., Approves Medical Use of Marijuana Washington, D.C., Approves Medical Use of Marijuana By ASHLEY SOUTHALL Published: May 4, 2010 | WASHINGTON — The District of Columbia Council approved a measure on Tuesday that would allow people with certain chronic illnesses to obtain medical marijuana from a handful of dispensaries regulated by the city. The 13-member Council voted unanimously to allow doctors to recommend marijuana for people who are infected with H.I.V., as well as people with glaucoma, cancer or a “chronic and lasting disease.” The legislation permits Mayor Adrian M. Fenty to establish up to eight dispensaries where patients could receive two ounces of marijuana a month. The measure gives the mayor the option of raising the amount to four ounces without further council action. Some doctors say marijuana helps relieve nausea, vomiting, certain AIDS symptoms and some side effects of chemotherapy. For glaucoma patients, the drug is believed to help lower eye pressure. The measure, which Mr. Fenty is expected to sign into law, thrusts the debate over medical marijuana into the hands of Congress and the White House, which must decide within 30 days whether to allow the city to proceed with the plan. To block the law from taking effect, the House and the Senate must pass a joint resolution and President Obama must approve it. ... Visit: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/05/us/05marijuana.html?_r=1

    District of Columbia, News - Washington DC: City Council Unanimously Backs Medical Marijuana Dispensary Plan Washington DC: City Council Unanimously Backs Medical Marijuana Dispensary Plan April 22, 2010 - Washington, DC, USA | Washington, DC: Members of the DC City Council voted unanimously this week in favor of legislation that seeks to establish medical marijuana dispensaries in the District of Columbia. Under the proposal (B 18-622), which is expected to receive final approval from the Council next month, city Health Department officials would regulate up to five facilities to dispense medical cannabis to authorized patients. Medical dispensaries would be limited to growing no more than 95 plants on site at any one time. Patients would be able to obtain up to two ounces of dispensary-provided marijuana per month, but would not be permitted to privately cultivate their own supply. Low-income patients will be allowed to purchase medical marijuana at a greatly reduced cost under the plan. The legislation seeks to implement components of Initiative 59 – a 1998 DC ballot measure that garnered 69 percent of the vote. However, until this year DC city lawmakers have been barred from instituting the measure because of a Congressional ban on the issue. Congress lifted its ban late last year. ...

    District of Columbia, News - Washington D.C. law aims to make medical marijuana affordable for poor patients Washington D.C. law aims to make medical marijuana affordable for poor patients BY Sean Alfano DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER Thursday, August 5th 2010 | If you live in Washington D.C., you'll never be too broke to buy pot. That is, of course, if you need marijuana for medical purposes, according to a law passed earlier in the year. The law provides medical marijuana at a discount for the city's poor residents. But who exactly is qualified to receive the cheaper pot, along with the price of the drugs, remains up in the air. The city is expected give some answers about the law in a report Friday, but patients won't be able to buy medical marijuana until 2011, the Associated Press reports. Fourteen states have laws legalizing medical marijuana, but D.C.'s is the first to offer the drug at a discount. City officials tell AP an ounce of pot from a sanctioned dispensary could run $350. Police data suggest buying illegal marijuana costs between $100 and $140. If the reduced rate isn't cheaper, pot advocates worry poor patients will break the law to get their medical marijuana. D.C. has one of the highest poverty levels in the country, with a third of its residents getting some financial help with health care. "People under the poverty level and below shouldn't have to pay anything," Teresa Skipper, a medical marijuana user who is HIV-positive, tells AP she can't afford to pay more than $50 an ounce for pot — which she currently buys illegally. ...

    District of Columbia, News - Council approves medical marijuana bill Council approves medical marijuana bill | The D.C. Council gave final approval to legalized medical marijuana today, but only after members agreed to make it easier for qualified patients to obtain larger quantities of the drug. The bill, which now goes to Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D), originally restricted chronically ill patients with a doctors' recommendation to no more than two ounces of marijuana in a 30-day period. But the council approved an amendment giving the Fenty administration the authority to set the possession limit at four ounces a month if it decides the need exists. If, as expected, Fenty signs the bill, Congress will have 30 days to review it before it becomes law.

    Under the legislation, the city will set up five to eight dispensaries where patients with chronic illnesses such as HIV/AIDS or cancer can purchase the drugs. Poor patients will be eligible for subsidized marijuana. But patients could not grow their own marijuana. Before the final vote, council members David Catania (I-At Large) and Phil Mendelson (D-At Large) fought off efforts by council member Jim Graham (D-Ward 1) to make substantial changes to the legislation. Graham pushed for an amendment that would have established civil protections so medical marijuana patients and their caregivers could not be fired or kicked out of their apartments because they use the drug. Catania and Mendelson argued that Graham's proposal would open the door to legalization.

    "You can have an airline pilot who could not be fired under the amendment Mr. Graham has offered," Catania said. Graham countered that Catania's allegation was absurd, saying the amendment was designed to protect medical marijuana users from discrimination. "This is doing what this council does in so many areas where we say we care about human rights," Graham said. ...

    District of Columbia, News - Medical Marijuana: Washington DC Medical Marijuana: Washington DC April 20th, 2010 | The following from The Washington Post: In 1998, 69 percent of D.C. voters endorsed the medicinal use of marijuana for those suffering from serious illnesses. Nothing came of the initiative because Congress immediately prohibited the use of local funds to support the program and DC was not added to the list of the places where it is legal to use medical marijuana. The ban was lifted last year, and the 11-year lag has actually proved to be something of a blessing, because the District is crafting legislation based on lessons learned from the experience — and mistakes — of other states. Initiative 59 was pretty basic; it gave individuals the right to use marijuana for medical purposes. By contrast, a bill (B18-622) that will come before the D.C. Council on Tuesday, with a vote scheduled for next month, would set up a strict regulatory structure that aims to guard against the problems experienced by some of the 14 other jurisdictions that allow marijuana use for individuals debilitated by illnesses such as cancer or multiple sclerosis. Key to that effort are strict registration requirements for patients, caregivers, dispensaries and cultivation centers. In addition, the bill caps the number of dispensaries at five and limits the quantity of marijuana that can be prescribed each month, making the proposal one of the most restrictive in the country. ...

    District of Columbia, News - DC Council Takes a Snow Day DC Council Takes a Snow Day Wednesday, February 10th, 2010 Posted by Don Duncan | ASA Associate Director Don Morgan and I traveled to Washington, DC, this week to speak to the City Council about proposed regulations for medical cannabis dispensaries in the District and work with the staff at our National Office. The City Council here is developing regulations for dispensaries after Congress voted in December to lift the ban against a medical cannabis initiative passed by the voters of Washington, DC, in 1998. Unfortunately, we arrived in the middle of a record setting blizzard – one that snarled traffic and closed government offices. The City Council canceled tomorrow’s hearing in light of the storm. We’re disappointed about the cancelation, but we are making good use of our time here. Tomorrow, Don Morgan and I will trudge back through deep snow for a third day of work with ASA Executive Director Steph Sherer.

    District of Columbia, News - DC Medical Marijuana Petitioners Challenge Initiative Count DC Medical Marijuana Petitioners Challenge Initiative Count August 13, 1998 - Washington, DC, USA | Attorneys on behalf of DC medical marijuana petitioners are appealing in Superior Court a decision by the DC Board of Elections to disqualify Initiative 59 from the November 1998 ballot. A complaint filed this week by ACT-UP head Wayne Turner argues that the BOE acted "arbitrarily and capriciously" when it rejected 4,600 petition signatures gathered by circulator Tanya Robinson. Had the BOE allowed the signatures in question, proponents maintain that Initiative 59 would have qualified for the ballot. Officials from the BOE contend that they properly "set aside" Ms. Robinson's signatures because the address stated on her certificates failed to match that in the Board records. Attorney Alisa Wilkins, co-counsel for Turner's challenge, said that the address entered by Ms. Robinson on her petition is the same address listed as her mailing address on her DC voter registration card. Proponents further hold that Ms. Robinson has been continuously registered as a DC voter since 1983.

    Initiative 59 seeks to exempt seriously ill patients who use marijuana under a doctor's supervision from criminal marijuana penalties. The measure also proposes allowing District residents to "organize not-for-profit corporations for the purpose of cultivating, purchasing, and distributing marijuana exclusively for ... medical use." Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, House Representatives approved an amendment to the "District of Columbia Appropriations Act of 1999" stating that no federal funds "may be used to conduct any ballot initiative which seeks to legalize or otherwise reduce penalties associated with the possession, use, or distribution of any schedule I substance ... or [marijuana] derivative." ...

    Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

    Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.

    "Physicians in D.C. Will Determine Patients' Eligibility for Medical Cannabis - Washington D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray recently signed B20-0876, the Medical Marijuana Expansion Emergency Amendment Act of 2014. Gray took the bold step of signing the emergency legislation which puts physicians in charge of determining who should use cannabis for medical purposes throughout DC. The emergency legislation, which was unanimously approved by the D.C. Council earlier this month, eliminates the limited list of conditions that a patient must have to legally access medical cannabis, as well as increases the plant limit at cultivation centers from 95 to 500 plants. Previously, D.C. limited use of medical cannabis to four conditions. > Read more >> http://www.cannabispharmacyjournal.com/2014/08/05/physicians-in-d-c-will-determine-patients-eligibility-for-medical-cannabis/ "

    Some on D.C. Council plan bills to ease penalties for having marijuana By Tim Craig,

    Some D.C. Council members are crafting legislation to lessen the penalties for marijuana possession, hoping to settle the matter before outside groups petition the issue onto the ballot. Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) and Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6) — who as chairman of the Judiciary and Public Safety Committee would shepherd the legislation — are formulating a proposal to eliminate criminal penalties for those caught with small amounts of cannabis or subject offenders to fines. “Absolutely, it’s time we look at decriminalization of marijuana in the District of Columbia,” said Wells, who is running for mayor next year. “It’s time we enter the 21st century and stop criminalizing people .&#8201;.&#8201;. for what is not really a major crime. ” - http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/dc-politics/some-on-dc-council-plan-bills-to-ease-penalties-for-having-marijuana/2013/05/15/18feed18-bd87-11e2-97d4-a479289a31f9_story.html "

Council on Tuesday. Without debate, the council authorized five medical marijuana distribution centers throughout the city, a number that could grow to eight in coming years. A patient who has HIV, glaucoma, cancer or a "chronic and lasting disease" will be able to receive a doctor's recommendation to possess up to 2 ounces of marijuana in a 30-day period. "
