It’s only natural the District would see an increased interest in horticulture after it became legal last month to grow marijuana plants. But with the sale of marijuana still illegal, those budding green thumbs have a problem: where to get marijuana seeds?
By hosting two seed exchanges this month, the D.C. Cannabis Campaign hopes to help.
“This will be D.C. residents’ opportunity to share seeds with other adults and start down the path of legally growing your own cannabis in the safety and privacy of your home,” the campaign announced Thursday.
Judging by the RSVPs for the event, there’s high demand. By Friday, more than 340 people had signed up for the two events, being held March 26 at the Northwest D.C. absinthe bar Libertine and March 28 and at the campaign’s headquarters.
