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.
