Ready to get started? Awesome. Let’s get to it.
Let me start by saying I don’t live in DC, but I go there occasionally for work a few times a year. I’ve been through the process multiple times and know the ropes.
The first is understanding the rules of engagement. DC is an odd place. It’s a city, but not a state, and in reality, a weird mix of a city/state based on how the governments work there.
You have city property and federal property. Weed is legal to possess in the city but cross into federal property and could end up with federal charges. If you drive into DC, make sure you know your route before you start if picking it up.
Weed delivery in DC is a thing!
I just place my orders online and have the product delivered. Yeah, there’s a delivery fee, but I don’t have to drive in DC and worry about crossing a street and inadvertently cross into federal property. I let the locals navigate that problem for me.
Remember I said I would give you resources? There’s a reason for it.
Not only is the city, state, and federal issue complicated, but DC’s local law that legalized recreational weed is regarded as one of the most unconventional recreational laws in the nation.
Here are a few critical points about weed in DC.
- It’s illegal to buy
- It’s illegal to sell
- You can possess up to two ounces
What a disconnect! What logic was used to come up with this mess? It was actually brilliant. They have what’s known as “gifting services.”
You visit a merchant or service, buy something there or pay for a service, and the company “gifts” you some weed. There seems to be a strong correlation between the price of the product and the amount of weed gifted. 😉
As you can see, there’s more information you need to complete the process successfully, and I promised a resource or two. So here’s the guide I used and still use when I have to make that trip. It’s a guide on a local director in DC called Urban Aroma that will help you find and get weed in DC quickly and safely.
See ya next time.
