While the federal government continues to push back on adult and medical marijuana programs across the country, our nations capital seems to have no issue with individuals 21+ using cannabis. The D.C. Council passed a bill in November 2016 that resulted in substantial changes for medical marijuana in the District of Columbia. It allows patients to access all of the dispensaries in the city instead of just one, and it also permits people who have been convicted of misdemeanor drug crimes to work in the industry. In November 2014, voters approved a ballot initiative that legalized the possession and cultivation of small amounts of pot for people 21 years of age and older.
