Washington Also Legalizes Pot For Recreation

Marijuana may become a very integral part of the capital’s culture now that Initiative 71 has been lit ablaze in Washington, the Washington Post reports

Despite defying threats from Congress, the District of Columbia legalized the possession of marijuana for recreational purposes today. Though Washington won’t come close to the free-blazing freedom known in Amsterdam—pot shops and open-air smoking is banned—its citizens will be able to grow, possess and use small amounts of pot from private residences. 

About 70 percent of city voters approved the legalization in November, and now that the nation’s capital has “gone green,” we may see a similar trend sweep the nation. Alaska legalized marijuana just days ago (what a week!) and at least five states are moving toward legalization votes next year, the Washington Post says.
