Now that marijuana is legal to grow and possess in Washington, D.C. there is just one problem: Where do we get the pot?
The DC Cannabis Campaign, which championed the legalization law, will hold the first of its planned “seed shares” on March 26 at The Libertine bar in North West D.C., the one month anniversary of the law taking effect.
Aspiring pot growers can attend this share event, or a second one planned for March 28, where other enthusiasts will gather to share, but not sell or trade, their seeds.
While possession of up to two ounces of marijuana is legal in the district, it is still against the law for residents to sell, trade or exchange any type of service for cannabis. Which means it will be illegal for attendees to offer food or drinks in exchange for seeds.
