There used to be weed strips in the District of Columbia that would take you through certain neighborhoods that were renowned for having green. This would also result in the police “jumping out” on those selling and buying it which all around was not a safe experience. However, in 2022 the answer is as simple as reading this article online. The safest way to buy weed in DC is by calling Select Co-Op, DC Cooperative, Takoma Care and Wellness (TCW), or Gifted Legacy to place your order to be “gifted”.
What does it mean to be “gifted”?
It is not exactly legal to recreationally sell weed in Washington, DC. Initiative 71 is a law in DC that allows for the transportation and “gifting” of cannabis. One cannot exchange money for cannabis but you can exchange it to those who buy music, clothes, stickers, etc. The delivery dispensaries of Select Co-Op, DC Cooperative, Takoma Care and Wellness (TCW), and Gifted Legacy provide you with your cannabis gift in exchange for your subscribing to their premiere menus.
Why are these delivery dispensaries the safest option?
In Washington DC a battle for medical dispensaries to try to shut down stores that gift has been waged over the past few years. The publication, The DCist, has reported raids, fines, and
businesses shutting down because of this. Most recently a bill was defeated to fine and shut down stores that gift. The medical
dispensaries argue they paid for licenses and that nobody should be able to “gift” except for them. As a result, DC now allows people to self-diagnose for a medical marijuana card to purchase from dispensaries.
However, delivery dispensaries face no such scrutiny. There is no physical location for one to accuse the business of violating the
law of having cannabis for sale or more than two ounces to gift. The delivery dispensaries can meet you for a delivery or a drop off
at a location you specify.
Can I go to a medical dispensary for my weed in DC?
The new law for self-diagnosing for a cannabis card in DC only applies to DC residents. Medical dispensaries will take cards from other states, but will not issue a card to a non-DC resident. However, the medical dispensaries have been complaining they cannot keep up with the recreational market due to taxes. Thus, they have higher priced weed and less strains to choose from.
The Safest Way to Buy Weed in DC
I have been using Select Co-Op for my cannabis needs for over three years. This year Select Co-Op partnered with DC Cooperative, Gifted Legacy, and Takoma care and Wellness delivery dispensaries. As a
result of this partnership, these companies have consistently provided some of the lowest prices and best strains available
anywhere, not just in Washington DC. Right now, the Jeeter strains they have are off the charts. Jeeters are pre-rolls infused with
kief and distillate concentrates. I recommend grabbing a Maui Wowie Jeeter from Select Co-Op asap, the safest way to buy weed in DC.
