DC And Marijuana, As Told By Muriel's Wedding

Muriel's Weeding, if you will.

Starting at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, February 26, DC residents will be able to legally grow and smoke marijuana (with some restrictions). Congressional Republicans are trying to shut that whole thing down, notably Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who threatened Bowser with prison if the law goes into effect.

Normally, DC residents are all:

...like when the Metro straight-up kills a woman

And with marijuana legalization, Congressional Republicans are all:

Mayor Bowser and DC's police chief support the "home grow, home use" law

Rep. Mark Meadows co-signed Chaffetz's letter to Muriel Bowser, and Rep. Andy Harris fought against decriminalization

DC is often the victim of federal interloping, and the residents don't take it too well.

So DC residents are on Bowser's side on this one

But the Constitution gives Congress the power to overturn local laws in DC

So there might be some legal back and forth

At least until DC finally becomes a state
