In 2014 the public voted in favor to legalize the possession of up to 2 ounces of marijuana and the cultivation of up to 6 plants by adults in our nations capital. Then some crud ball decided to hide a few lines of legislation in the 1000+ page 2015 budget that directly conflicts with the peoples wishes.
The hidden legislation prevents DC from spending public money to begin work on the legalization process that the public overwhelmingly supports. But luckily for us there is a brighter light at the end of the tunnel. And just recently several of our more intelligent representatives, notably David Grosso, who apparently still remembers who he works for has decided to push to move forward with legalization.
This is in defiance of the good ole boys club who still insists on keeping marijuana illegal for all except the largest and most favored corporations. We obviously need more good people like David working for us in our government.
