The District of Columbia is joining a growing number of states and cities which are reversing their positions with regards to marijuana use.
Every year, thousands of young, primarily black men are arrested for marijuana possession and for the vast majority, that act will have a tremendous impact on the course their lives take going forward.

A bill to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana has been introduced by a D.C. Council member and it appears that he has a large number of District residents who support his efforts.
