Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser shared her support for marijuana legalization on popular social media platform Twitter.

She tweeted,

A petition is attached to the tweet, which refers readers to the Safe Cannabis Petition. The purpose of the petition is to urge Congress to allow the District of Columbia to make its own decisions about marijuana regulations, amid ongoing federal prohibition of marijuana. It also provides readers with insight as to what the Safe Cannabis Act would do, which is as follows:

  • “Establish a legal sales and tax regime in the District
  • Enhance public health and safety
  • Advance equity
  • Provide clarity on the legal use of marijuana
  • Automatically seal most records of marijuana convictions
  • Devote millions of dollars of sales tax revenues to affordable housing
  • Require 60% of ownership for each new licensee and 60% of employees to be DC residents”

Browser also announced recently an expansion to the medical marijuana program, which will permit patients from other certain states to purchase their medications from dispensaries in the district. Not all states will qualify for recognition, but at least around 27 might.
