DC Pot Legalization Turning Neighbors Against Each Other [+video]

By Emily Miller. The District passed a law legalizing pot use in residences, but the city did not specify how to control the smoke going into other apartments and condos or public areas.

Brooklyn Mom Says Daughter Is Partially Paralyzed Because of Pot Brownie
