Although it’s officially legal to grow and possess cannabis under Initiative 71, it’s still against the law to sell it, trade it or exchange services for it. The DC Cannabis Campaign has figured out a way to work around this unnecessary obstacle by hosting two Spring Seed Shares later this month in two different locations.
“Since Ballot Initiative 71 passed last November, the DC Cannabis Campaign has received many requests for cannabis seeds,” the Campaign said. “We’ve said all along, ‘ask a friend, they might have some seeds to give you.’ Still, we know that not everyone has friends who have seeds available to share.”
The first one will take place on March 26 at Libertine and the next one will be held two days later the the DC Cannabis Campaign Headquarters. The free events are only open to attendees 21 and over with a government-issued I.D. According to reports, more than 300 people have RSVPed.
The goal of these groundbreaking seed shares is to give residents access to seed for home cultivation. Attendees are asked not to bring more than 2 ounces of seeds to share with others. Of course, with all of the specific regulations regarding what’s legal and what’s not, the organizers are working hard to work within guidelines. A few of the rules attendees are expected to observe include not exchanging any money for any reason, limiting seed shares to one ounce per person and keeping the seeds in possession (in a bag or container on your person) for the duration of the event.
“There probably is something we didn’t think of,” said chairman Adam Eidinger. “We’re trying to prevent any running afoul of the law.”
