WASHINGTON: The first of two seed shares in D.C. this week was held Thursday in an effort to help residents grow pot inside their homes.
Under Initiative 71, it’s officially legal to grow and possess marijuana in the District.
Since it passed, the D.C. cannabis campaign says they’ve received many requests for cannabis seeds for home cultivation.
To help out, the group is hosting two seed shares to give D.C. residents access to seeds. Thousands of people showed up to the first seed share Thursday at Libertine on 18th Street in Adams Morgan.
Here’s what you need to know: They’re free and open to D.C. residents, 21 and over, with a government issued ID.
Keep in mind; you cannot bring more than two ounces of seeds to share with others.
The second seed share is on Saturday at the D.C. Cannabis campaign headquarters.
Initiative 71 allows possession of up to two ounces of pot and permits users to grow up to three plants.
Residents, however, can only smoke marijuana at home. They cannot smoke marijuana in public, nor can they buy or sell the drug.-
