For the first time in decades, there has been a legal sale of marijuana in D.C. It is medical marijuana.
On Monday the first medical marijuana patient walked into a dispensary, Capital City Care, and conducted the transaction.
"Beyond excited. This is fabulous. We've been waiting, as you know, for 15 years,” says General Manager David Guard. “Just got word [Monday] that we could open our doors."
Capital City Care will sell four strains of marijuana. Patients must be D.C. residents approved by the city's Department of Health.
