The law regarding the possession and use of marijuana in the District of Columbia seems destined to cause substantial confusion. Under the law, an individual 21 years of age or older may possess or transport two ounces or less of marijuana. What does this allow you to do?
However, YOU MAY NOT
The law outlined above is applicable throughout the District of Columbia. However, much of the District of Columbia is actually federal property and marijuana is still a Schedule 1 narcotic under federal law. Therefore, if you are visiting your congressman, going to the Smithsonian Museum, or attending a concert on the mall, leave your marijuana at home. You do not want to be the test case for harsher treatment under federal law.
Remember, if you are under 21, just say “No.”
