a New Initiative To Legalize IN D.C.

Legalization activists recently filed a ballot initiative in D.C., titled the “New Modern Day Cannabis Justice Reform Act,” to legalize marijuana sales in the nation’s capital.

The measure proposes to: cease and desist all levels, investigations, prosecutions regarding cannabis; make unlawful search, seizure, and arrest based on probable cause that indicates the presence of cannabis products; persons currently arrested or previously  convicted for cannabis products shall be expunged.

The proposal has yet to collect enough valid signatures for the ballot.
