Washington, DC: Legislation to Expand Medical Cannabis Retail Access

Update: B22-446 passed out of the Health Committee on 3/14.

Legislation B22-446, is set to expand patients' access to medical marijuana under District law on april 9, 2018.

This measure seeks to increase access among qualified patients by: establishing same-day registration, permitting home delivery, establishing safe-treatment facilities, establishing reciprocity with other jurisdictions, allowing existing dispensaries to expand their operations, and capping taxes, among other changes.

These changes will assure that District patients — as well as those visiting from other jurisdictions that have similar programs in place — will have safe, consistent and reliable access to affordable medicine.
