David Grosso is still working on the bill he hopes to introduce during the council’s Sept. 17 return, but says it will outline a plan to regulate and tax marijuana, along with creating licensing requirements and decriminalizing the substance.

Legalized pot in the nation’s capital is no pipe dream.

D.C. councilman David Grosso plans to introduce legislation Sept. 17 that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana in the city — with a dance with Mary Jane possibly replacing the played-out Potomac two-step.

“If we’re going to have alcohol legal in this country, I don’t see any reason why we couldn’t have marijuana legal,” Grosso said — bluntly.

The bill will outline a plan for regulating and taxing marijuana sales and create licensing requirements for the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration, Grosso told The Washington Times.

It will also reportedly enable pot smokers to grow small amount of cannabis on their property.

    Just hurry up and legalize it. Tired of the propaganda.

    Legalize it, or don’t. I’m smoking it either way. Honestly feels a little better to buy it tax free just because of the douchebags that made it illegal don’t really deserve a cut of my money.
