Congress allows DC to implement 1998 medical marijuana law | NORML Blog

You think this will pass? I hope it does as it is long overdue.

In 1998 DC residents voted 69% in favor of medical marijuana, but then congress passed a bill banning it.

It passed. In fact, this is the same initiative that passed in 1998. Congress just lifted their ban on the implementation of the law. There may be a Congressional review of the text of the voter initiative, but otherwise DC is free to proceed with medical marijuana. Before prescribing can begin, however, the City Council must decide how to regulate prescriptions, cultivation, and distribution. Council Member David Catania estimates that these details won't be finalized in regulations until the end of 2010. (Washington Post article here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/13/AR2009121302587.html).
