This morning The Post writes:

“The D.C. Council is set to vote Tuesday on legalizing medical marijuana, thereby allowing the chronically ill — including those with HIV, glaucoma or cancer — to buy pot from dispensaries in Washington.

Yet marijuana is already ubiquitous in many parts of the city, as demonstrated by federal surveys showing that Washingtonians’ fondness for weed is among the strongest in the country — and growing.”

I’m just curious if your experiences support this article. In my experiences weed was much more prevalent in Cincinnati, Ohio than DC. But, I’m just curious what you guys think.

Also I’m not really sure what the point of this front page article is but if DC passes the medical marijuana bill do you think it will lead to a greater “fondness for weed” in DC? Will it de-stigmatize pot? Is pot even stigmatized at the moment? Do you think this is the first step in the ultimate decriminalization of marijuana?
