DC Recreational Marijuana – what you need to know if you’re coming into town
Since marijuana was legalized for recreational use in 2014, you no longer have to search for a “connect” discreetly – it’s actually pretty easy to buy weed in DC. Recreational cannabis dispensaries and weed delivery services are a lot easier to find than 420 friendly hotels.
It is probably safe to assume you are from out of town so here is what you need to know about Initiative 71 and how you can enjoy cannabis within the limits of the law:
- You must be over the age of 21 with a valid drivers license to possess marijuana products
- You cannot consume, smoke, or possess cannabis on federal property (it is still not legal under federal law … yet!)
- Cannabis products cannot be purchased, however, they can be given as a “gift”
- You are allowed to have up to 2 ounces on your person but not more
- Feel free to enjoy your marijuana in any private 420 friendly location but not in public
What do we consider a DC weed friendly hotel?

If it was the 90’s and smoking rooms were still a thing, this article would be irrelevant. But, since almost all hotels (outside of dives that most of us wouldn’t stay in) are non-smoking we found these options for you.
If these don’t work for you, you could always grab some cannabis edibles and enjoy them anywhere!
