From the Washington Post:

“I have been hesitant in past years to call for statehood for the District because I believed that we could achieve voting rights for its residents without having to take the politically difficult steps statehood would entail…

From an email:

From Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s office:

“Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) announced that today she introduced the Marijuana in Federally Assisted Housing Parity Act of 2019, which would permit the use of marijuana in federally assisted housing, including public housing and Section 8 housing, in compliance with the marijuana laws of the state where the property is located.

Federal law also allows landlords to evict residents of federally assisted housing for drug use. Norton says that individuals living in federally assisted housing should not be denied admission, or fear eviction, for using a product legal in their state. Both adult use and medical use of marijuana is currently legal in 33 states and the District of Columbia and over 90 percent of Americans support legalized medical marijuana. (more…)
