Medical marijuana users in the District may not have to go to a clinic or a doctor’s office to get their dose; they may be able to go into their backyard.

D.C. Council is thinking of adding a provision to the new medical marijuana bill that would allow some users to grow plants for their own use. They’d likely be limited to two plants per home.

City leaders are still ironing out a number of details about legalized medical marijuana -- a decade-old issue that just recently became relevant. Washingtonians voted to legalize marijuana back in 1998, but it wasn’t until last December that Congress approved D.C.’s 2010 budget. That allowed the District to legalize marijuana.

hopefully florida wises up one of these days. somewhat surprised DC did this - possibly a sign of good things to come?

Time will tell. I don't see this sticking, though. If DC wants statehood, they're not going to be able to spit in the DEA's face at the same time.

Remember when Arizona wasn't going to recognize MLK's holiday... the NFL said, "Fine, you won't get any Super Bowls." Changed their minds in a hurry.
