Recreational marijuana legal use explained in Washington D.C. -February 26, 2015
As February 26, in the capital city of the United States, marijuana will be a legal. There will be no pot shops, no open-air smoking, but at least for the moment, the District — for once in its decades-long struggle for the right to govern itself — has gotten its way, and a green rush is on.
Despite a last-hours intervention by the Republican chairman of the House committee that handles D.C. affairs, Mayor Muriel E. Bowser and D.C. Council members said Wednesday that they would not back down from implementing the will of the 70 percent of District of Columbia voters who approved legalization in November 2014.
