Despite opposition from Republican lawmakers, the possession of recreational marijuana became legal in Washington D.C. Thursday. But it does come with some limitations.
You have to be 21 or older and can only possess up to two ounces, you can smoke or grow it at your private residence only (so, no lighting up in public) and no selling it under any circumstances. (Video via WTTG)
The initiative came with some with resistance from GOP lawmakers. Two House Republicans came down harshly on District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser for allowing the measure to move forward, even threatening her with jail time.
