The first legal medical marijuana dispensary opened in the District last week, under some of the strictest oversight rules anywhere in the country. California was an early pioneer, legalizing medical marijuana in 1996, with the loosest rules instituted in Los Angeles. As that city attempts to rein in the hundreds of dispensaries around the city, even supporters acknowledge missteps. We explore what the District might learn from regulation around the country.
Missing from this list is Illinois, which became the 20th state to legalize medical marijuana on Aug. 1.
