I remember there being a lot of hype surrounding D.C. and the implementation of its mmj program. Does anyone have the info on the current state of affairs??? I've only found minimal info on the subject. I think you can't grow your own and you have to buy from a dispensary...I wonder is this going to eventually set a precedent nationwide....only government sanctioned distributors....
I heard the system was supposed to be one where pot prices for poorer patients are subsidized. Richer patients pay full price, lower income patients pay less on a sliding scale. This was from a few friends from the DC area. I haven't read any legal papers on it.
Good looking MrS!!! Do me a favor and stay up to the minute on this issue for me. Any links you can find would be much appreciated...the info I've seen online is minimal at best. There use to be a guy on here that was putting in some serious activist work in regards to the topic in d.c., but i guess he's no longer around.
From what I read somewhere, they will be implementing the dispenaries in June of this year, but it could easily be postponed, politicians keep finding ways of delaying the opening of these dispensaries. There is also a lot of backlash coming from the communities that were selected for the growing warehouses and the actual dispenaries. Most the places selected are in Northeast DC, and the residents in that area are scared the crime rates will rise once the grow warehouses are there
High Society: Washington’s Love Affair With Marijuana
Medical marijuana is set to arrive in DC this summer. But the drug is already a much bigger part of upper-middle-class life here than you might think.

I don't know much about it but I do want to say I think its a big deal.
Its a joke to have medical marijuana in our nations capital and for them to still vilify us.
The point I'm trying to make here... is that there there ain't no point to it. Thats all it is. Because there ain't no point. You didn't ask to come here and you sure can't choose how to leave. You don't know when you're going to go. So don't take this shit serious now. You better have some fun and plenty of it. Because when the shit is over and you ask for a refund its too late. All I can tell you is to keep some sunshine on your face. -Mudbone
