Ending Marijuana Prohibition

25,000 Marijuana Seeds Given Out In Washington D.C.

marijuana seedsWashington D.C. voters approved marijuana legalization by a very large margin. Washington D.C. Initiative 71 passed during the 2014 Election by a margin of 70.06% ‘yes’ to 29.94% ‘no’. The initiative legalized marijuana possession and cultivation, but did not include a way to obtain marijuana from a store due to taxing and spending provisions that require Congressional approval. In order to help citizens of Washington D.C., the Initiative 71 campaign organized two marijuana seed giveaways last week, which was a tremendous success. Per WUSA9:

For the second time this week, people stood in line for free marijuana seeds

The line was even longer Saturday for folks wanting marijuana seeds than the first ‘seed share’ on Thursday. Thousands waited outside DC Cannabis Campaign headquarters for hours for a few seeds. People have never been so elated standing in the cold.

“Everyone is very happy to be here,” said Amy Dunham.

“We’re all getting along, all creeds and color,” added Patrick Mitchell

The line stretched several blocks along embassy row on Massachusetts Avenue NW for the historic marijuana seed share event.

In total, roughly 25,000 marijuana seeds were given out in Washington D.C.. D.C.’s marijuana legalization law allows people to give marijuana (seeds or otherwise) to other people, as long as no money changes hands. It still blows my mind to know that there are seeds and plants being cultivated all over our nation’s capital. These are truly exciting times in America, and it makes me very happy to see how far we have come. There is still a lot of work left to be done, but the success of the seed giveaways in D.C. is cause for celebration.

    A great success, and a great model, for the whole world.

  • j.bailey

    Yes !! Pay it forward big pharma can’t catch up then.

  • All we are saying, is give seeds a chance…

  • Sinclair

    Great numbers on the vote and legal transfer of seeds sweet. Everyone who is if legal age should be able to grow if they choose nationwide .

    This is great. I live in Florida where during this last election we had 58% of voters vote for medical marijuana and it still did not go through. In Florida there needs to be a 60%+ majority for a state amendment to pass.
    It is disheartening in a sense because I could go to D.C. and give a guy some weed in front of the Whitehouse, and yet I could go to jail for having a joint in my pocket in my own front yard. We, the people, need this.

    I guess the economy is buzzing along so well that another source of revenue by taxation isn’t needed. Idiot Windbags!

  • Silly Rabbit

    Wow ….. Some nice beans you got there partner!

  • been there

    YES!!! Thanks for sharing – to the seed sharers and to TWB.

  • leagalize cannabis

    I don’t believe that all those seeds obtained were not purchased at some point to just give away. Who has that many seeds just laying around to just give away?

    • waky wake

      The D.C. police, from 50+ years of Confiscations, during marijuana prohibition arrests.

      • MrBelvedere

        Hopefully worldwide some day all seeds in police evidence rooms will be released and the great lost landraces and other “extinct” strains will be resurrected from extinction. Also hopefully the University of Mississippi has kept our confiscated weed and not incinerated all of it.

    • MrBelvedere

      It is incredibly easy to create seeds for free. You just need a male plant and female plant hanging out together. One female plant pollinated can yield thousands of free seeds.

    • Jordan Shorette

      isn’t that hard, for the longest time I had a sandwich baggy full just from years and years of smoking and finding one or two at a time throughout my life but unfortunately I misplaced it last year lol

  • Nathaniel

    That sounds like a win. Good going DC!!!

  • 2buds4me

    Just think – 25,000 baby girls and boys sprouting up over the next few days and weeks in the DC area. And 3-5 months from now – they may share the love all over again – with giving away on Craigslist – “Free weed to a good home”. Warms my heart!

    LOL – Just checked Craigslist DC – seeds and clones already available – donation basis

    • Jane Pink

      What’s that link?

      • 2buds4me

        DC.craigslist.com search seeds, clones, weed

  • Cyndysub

    Cool.

  • Ted Mishler

    to think that marc emery sold seeds and was sent to a prison, when will indiana join in and at least pass out some quality seed?

  • Conservative Christian

    Let’s start doing unto others as we would have them do unto
    us. None of us would want our kids put in jail over a little marijuana. None of
    us would want the police to confiscate and sell our parents’ home because they
    grew a couple of plants to help with the aches and pains of growing older.
    Let’s start treating other people the way we would want to be treated.
