As a cannabis enthusiast, you may be wondering how to get the best edibles in DC. In this comprehensive guide to Washington DC edibles, you will learn what’s legal, where you can enjoy them, and the best places to buy them.
Do DC weed laws cover cannabis edibles?
Yes, weed edibles are legal under the protections of Initiative 71. According to mayor.dc.gov, as long as you are over the age of 21, you can:
- possess up to two ounces of marijuana;
- grow up to six cannabis plants in your primary residence;
- consume cannabis on private property;
While purchasing weed or cannabis edibles is still illegal, you can receive them as a “free marijuana gift.”
Where can you buy edibles in DC?
The next logical question is where to buy edibles in DC? You have a few options to purchase your dc edibles.
DC weed delivery services
Since the passage of Initiative 71, cannabis delivery service businesses have been popping up across the Washington, DC area. Some offer an online menu of products, including edibles.
At DMV 42 Zero, we are proud to offer the largest selection of DC cannabis products and edibles in the DC area. In exchange for a donation, you can shop our online edibles menu and fill your cart with your favorite edibles.
Most Washington DC cannabis delivery services will meet you at a convenient location like your home, a coffee shop, or your place of work. However, the laws prohibit us from meeting you on federal land because marijuana is not legal on the federal level … yet!
Medical marijuana dispensaries
Medical marijuana dispensaries are another option to purchase edibles in the District. There are a limited number of dispensaries in operation, and they only serve patients with valid medical marijuana cards.
Capital City Care is a popular weed dispensary that offers a great selection of edibles.
Local weed shops
Just like delivery services, weed shops have been opening up rapidly across the nation’s capital. A weed shop may be convenient if you have one local to your home or place of work but don’t be surprised to find a long line depending on the time of day.
So, where can you legally consume edibles in DC?
The law states that “Smoking or consuming marijuana on public space or anywhere to which the public is invited” is prohibited.
As you can imagine, consuming edibles is a lot more discreet than smoking weed. So technically, as long as you’re careful, you can consume them anywhere. A pot brownie and bakery brownie look identical. Just don’t be dumb. Public intoxication is still illegal and can get you arrested.
It’s always safest when you’re buying edibles to consume them in your own home.
