DC voters in November approved a ballot initiative that allows adults 21 and older to possess up to two ounces of marijuana, grow up to six plants, and gift up to one ounce of pot to other adults 21 and older. The measure, which took effect Thursday, doesn’t legalize sales, so anyone who tries to make a profit off marijuana could still get locked up. Smoking in public remains banned.
