After just five days of pot being legal in the nation’s capital, the D.C. Council voted unanimously to approve new limits on marijuana use. The legislation introduced last week by Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) prohibits smoking in bars, clubs and virtually anywhere else outside a private home that residents may gather to smoke the drug. Adam Eidinger, head of the D.C. Cannabis Campaign, warned that the restrictions rendered void an agreement that he had struck last year with Bowser to try to prevent public displays of marijuana smoking in D.C. that might provoke opponents in Congress.
