Bowser’s proposal to legalize the sale of marijuana will lead to a fight with Congress. Bring it on.

MAYOR MURIEL E. BOWSER’S proposal to legalize and regulate the sale of marijuana might well lead to a confrontation with Congress. So be it. The current law that allows D.C. residents to grow and possess, but not to purchase, small amounts of cannabis makes no sense.

The city is barred from collecting taxes that have benefited states with regulated sales, and the inability to monitor the practices and products of the market puts the public’s safety at risk
