D.C. residents toke up as conservative legislators fume

WASHINGTON -- Adam Eidinger didn't waste any time. As soon as recreational marijuana became legal on Thursday, the man who led the effort invited the press over to watch as he smoked a joint at his District of Columbia home.

---

Two members of a house committee that oversees the district told the mayor she is in "willful violation of the law," and demanded names of employees who worked on the initiative.

"There's up to two years prison time," said Rep. Harris. "You lose your job. There are fines involved. It's a serious violation, because it's taking taxpayer money and spending it for something that Congress says you specifically can't spend taxpayer dollars on."

"We believe that we're acting lawfully," Mayor Bowser said. "So I have a lot of things to do here in the District of Columbia and me being in jail wouldn't be a good thing."

5. how does it cost money

To send an email to the police chief explaining that the law says 56 grams or less is legal in public..six plants or less is legal..and giving away an ounce or less is legal..and any amount harvested from the six plants is legal...

Such an email.would take one minute and cost nothing...then the chief would just tell all the cops about the new law.

Where is money being spent???
The reason they cant license stores and grow op for sales is due to the cost of creating a licensing administration...but where was money spent by allowing home grows and personal possession

7. They say, it starts in California and is adopted in the rest of the country...

ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — In a CBS2 News exclusive, Investigative Reporter David Goldstein uncovers medical marijuana being sold to school-aged kids in broad daylight, within walking distance of local schools.

He reported the city was quick to act when he brought his disturbing findings to officials.

Goldstein recorded many instances of adults buying the marijuana and quickly turning around and re-selling it to the underage kids.

The students were shown, many times, smoking the pot minutes after leaving their schools.

Welcoming kids to the pleasures of pot in Washington, DC is now made much easier...

8. LOL. Nice try.

Let's ban alcohol and smokes because kids can get them.

OH and let's not blame the people doing an action but let's blame the freedoms they have instead.

Cause we all know cons want less freedoms, especially when it comes to plants that grow naturally on earth.

10. You mean a less government controlled and criminalized conduit

here's a thought for you:

Is it already a crime to sell/give pot to kids?

If the answer is yes, why do you want more laws?

11. It's also a federal crime to be in possession of marijuana.
