Medical and adult-use cannabis in Washington, D.C.
D.C. has an established medical cannabis market and an unregulated adult-use market. There are currently 2 bills before the D.C. Council which would implement a regulated adult-use cannabis market. In November 2020, D.C. voters approved Initiative 81 – The Entheogenic Plant and Fungus Policy Act of 2020, which made the enforcement of laws against natural usage and possession of plant medicines among the lowest law local enforcement priorities.
Since 2015, K&M has advised business owners in D.C’s gray market about best practices and risk mitigation.
