Washington, D.C. marijuana activists are proposing an amendment to a legalization bill that would allow small entrepreneurs to sell cannabis at farmers markets. The District Council will consider it on November 19th.
District of Columbia Marijuana Justice (DCMJ) announced on Wednesday, November 17th, that members would be presenting the amendment at the upcoming hearing, with the goal of creating a cannabis licensing category that would support craft cultivators and cottage industry entrepreneurs.
The proposed measure would create a “Cottage Industry License” that would “authorize the licensee to grow and produce medicinal and/or adult-use cannabis within their residence for sale and delivery at wholesale directly to manufacturers, testing facilities, retailers, and farmers markets,” the text of the amendment states.
