D.C. Councilman to introduce mj legalization Sept. 17th [View all]

D.C. councilman David Grosso plans to introduce legislation Sept. 17 that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana in the city with a dance with Mary Jane possibly replacing the played-out Potomac two-step.

"If we're going to have alcohol legal in this country, I don't see any reason why we couldn't have marijuana legal," Grosso said bluntly.

The bill will outline a plan for regulating and taxing marijuana sales and create licensing requirements for the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration, Grosso told The Washington Times.

Grosso, who is still working on the bill, thinks a few attempts might be needed before the legislation passes, but hopes this first round will spark a debate.
