D.C.'s first medical marijuana dispensary hopes for April opening


Medical marijuana experts and activists are coming to D.C. for a national conference next week - just as the district's first medical marijuana dispensaries gear up for business.

The city has licensed six facilities to grow the drug and four shops to sell medicinal marijuana.

Capital City Care on North Capitol Street is one of those shops. They hope to open in early April, becoming the district's first medical marijuana dispensary.

General manager David Guard said the rules will be the strictest in the country.

"The receptionist will double check your ID, issued by the Department of Health, against their database," Guard explained.

What used to be a Curves gym is now a pot shop, with bamboo woodwork, soft lighting and customers lining up.
