This year pot enthusiasts in Washington, D.C. can legally exchange marijuana related presents with family and friends for the very first time. Cannabis use and possession is now legal in Washington, D.C., after the voter approved regulation on marijuana legalization took effect. Still, the regulation restricts marijuana sales for business.
This leaves two ways of legally getting hold of cannabis in D.C.
It is either by cultivating it yourself in your private property or getting it from another individual who cultivates cannabis. In both cases you have to be of age 21 and above.
An Initiative organizer and political activist said, “It is a dazzling holiday season since you can offer marijuana to your friends and family in Washington DC.”
Marijuana DC legalization doesn’t permit the sale and taxation of cannabis and Congress saw to that again a week ago, once it included marijuana riders in omnibus spending bill.
This is definitely a disputed subject, and nevertheless there are at least 500 home cannabis cultivators in the District. And people can freely give away heaps of what they developed.
Eidinger said that individuals are surely interested in marijuana themed gifts, and they are coming in for gifts that may facilitate harvesting their plants, because in most cases they do not have the necessary equipment, so it is a decent present for the holidays.
It is all still somewhat disputed, though. Eidinger said he is concentrating on ensuring individuals’ know how to do it legally. This means gift/presents including home developed marijuana are only given in amounts less than one ounce and only are given/taken in private properties.
Eidinger told that he loves the excitement for the legalization. He thinks it would help them to change the regulations because what is happening currently under the existing regulation seems to be really wrong.
There are still a lot of questions on the topic. However, in any event, if you are giving or exchanging marijuana in DC, it won’t be an issue. Happy holidays!
