Medical Marijuana in Washington, DC

Possession of marijuana in the District of Columbia is a misdemeanor charge, for any/all amounts, punishable by six months in jail and a $1000 fine. For first offenders, charges may be expunged from the records after all sentences have been completed. Cultivation and sales of marijuana are felony charges, which carry penalties of five years in prison and fines of $50,000. Any sales or cultivation taking place within 1000 feet of a school or other area, as specified within the law, carries an additional felony charge, and thereby doubles the penalty for each category of conviction.
