Tuesday: D.C. Council Expected to Vote to Proceed with Permanent Ban on Marijuana Clubs

WASHINGTON -

The Council of the District of Columbia has scheduled a vote today on legislation that restricts adult marijuana use in the District, prohibiting marijuana consumption everywhere but the home. The legislation is opposed by a majority of District residents and a growing number of councilmembers who oppose limiting consumption of marijuana to private residences, favoring instead the creation of regulated places where adults can legally consume marijuana. Since 2014, nearly 82% of all arrests for public consumption in the District have been of Black residents.
