WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Capital City Care opened its door in Washington today.
This is the first licensed medical marijuana dispensary located on 1334 N. Capitol St, N.W.. Voters in Washington passed an initiative which allows people who have a serious illness to legally buy medical marijuana, according to a press release.
The general manager, David Guard said in a statement, "It's so exciting to welcome patients into Capital City Care for the first time. Every day we hear from people who are suffering from serious illnesses and need another option for treating their symptoms. It's an honor to be able to help them improve their quality of life and provide care to this large under-served population."
Only patients who have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, cancer, glaucoma, severe muscle spasms are able to participate in this program. They have to be recommended by a DC licensed doctor, show that they are DC residents, and approved by the Department of Health, it said in a press release.
Alonzo, a registered patient who was the first customer here said, "As a person living with HIV, the ability to use medical marijuana will go far in helping to alleviate the challenges I have both with the disease and side effects from my medication. Capital City Care is a life-affirming resource staffed with sensitive and compassionate providers. They are not only knowledgeable about the benefits of cannabis, but through their advocacy on our behalf have made this resource a reality. Visiting the dispensary for the first time was an experience I'll remember forever."
Denver council approves 5 percent marijuana tax

DENVER — The city council, meeting as a committee of all 13 members, voted 7-5 Monday afternoon to move forward with a proposal to levy a five percent tax on recreational marijuana next year.
That municipal tax, which must be approved by voters, would likely come on top of the 25 percent combined statewide tax rate, which voters must also approve this November.
The council was divided on the tax rate conundrum: setting the rate too high, the industry worried, might lead would-be legal customers to go to the black market, while setting it too low, many council members argued, might leave the city without the $9 million in revenue they believe they’ll need to regulate marijuana shops.
In the end, they settled on an initial five percent rate, which is what Mayor Michael Hancock’s administration was pushing for, that will take effect on January 1, 2014, when recreational marijuana becomes the law of the land.
But the council also voted to leave the city come wriggle room, allowing a sliding scale of sorts so that members can vote in the future to lower the rate to 3.5 percent or to raise it as high as 15 percent depending on the revenue stream.
