Bill That Would Legalize Possession of Small Amounts of Pot Introduced in DC

PPP poll says more than 60 percent of people in the nation's capital support legislation similar to the marijuana legalization laws in Colorado and Washington


A bill that would legalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana for adults over 21 and set up a system of regulated marijuana commerce was introduced in the District of Columbia city council Tuesday. Filed by Councilmember David Grosso (I-At Large), the bill would give regulatory authority to the DC Alcoholic Beverages Regulation Administration.
