A new bill introduced in the U.S. Senate this week would allow Washington D.C. to finally take steps to begin recreational cannabis sales, Marijuana Moment reports. Cannabis use has been in a legal grey area since the city voted to legalize cannabis possession in 2014. The ballot measure allowed D.C. residents to possess cannabis or gift it to another adult, but prohibited any sales of the drug. As a result, numerous entrepreneurs in the city have come up with a variety of unique cannabis services where adults can make donations in exchange for “free” weed.
