Washington DC was technically one of the early adopters of legalized recreational cannabis, enacting Initiative 71 in November 2014 as the states of Alaska and Oregon on the Pacific Coast were undertaking the same steps. However, because Washington DC is a federal district and not a state, its move toward open legal sales has been much slower.
As of 2019, the legal sale of cannabis is still blocked in Washington DC because of federal-level politics that have threatened to block essential funding for the district. Nevertheless, Initiative 71 did give adults 21 and older the ability to possess up to two ounces of marijuana legally, grow up to six plants, and gift up to one ounce of cannabis to another person.
The reverse face of the 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Washington DC Silver Rounds includes a design theme that boasts a railway crossing the Potomac River in the distance as George Washington stands prominently over the city. To his left, the US Capitol Building is visible and Lady Liberty holds the scales of justice in her right hand.
Washington DC entrepreneurs have found clever ways around the federal blockade on the legal sale of cannabis in the district. Many companies will sell t-shirts, hats, and other wares in retail storefronts and allow consumers to set a price for an item such as a shirt. The individual will purchase the shirt and the store gifts them the legal one ounce maximum of cannabis.
On the obverse of 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Rounds is a depiction of a cannabis leaf with handcuffed fists in front of it. The chains on the cuffs and the chain along the border design indicate the resistance to the legalization movement.
These 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Washington DC Silver Rounds are available to you with protective blister card and a numbered certificate. Antique silver rounds have a polish that delivers a brushed appearance to the finish.
