What marijuana/cannabis businesses can you start in Washington D.C.?

Initiative 71 will allow adults 21 and older to possess up to two ounces of marijuana and cultivate up to six plants — with no more than three being mature — in their private residence. Adults will also be allowed to give away up to an ounce of marijuana, but any sales would still be criminal. Finally, the initiative would remove penalties for the using and selling of marijuana paraphernalia. 

D.C. law forbids imposing a tax via the ballot initiative process, so Initiative 71 does not set up a Colorado-like system of taxing and regulating the production and adult retail sales of marijuana. MPP will continue to work with the D.C. Council, the mayor’s office, and our allies to see to it that the marijuana market no longer funds dangerous criminals and drug cartels, but is entrusted to regulated, taxed, and responsible entrepreneurs.
