Advocates Will Push Back Against Congress’s Attempt To Block Pot Legalization

Congress, who always makes decisions and passes legislation with D.C. resident’s best interest at heart, attached a rider to an omnibus spending bill last night that would block the District from legalizing marijuana.
The fact that 65 percent of District voters wanted to legalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana legalized for personal use, Congress decided that “nah, those residents don’t really know what they want, but we do!” and are attempting to block D.C. from implementing Initiative 71 through language in a bill. Naturally, some people are beginning to question that Congress isn’t acting with our interests at heart and aren’t too thrilled about that.
