The Outlaw Report: Erin Palmer Wants To Bring D.C.’s Weed Gifting Shops ‘In The Daylight’

Story by Gaspard Le Dem

Palmer isn’t interested in engaging in the vitriolic discourse that often animates important political races. An advisory neighborhood commissioner in Ward 4, she’d much rather get deep into the issues and policies that affect local residents on a daily basis.

When it comes to cannabis policy, her opponent has become somewhat of a polarizing figure. On the one hand, Mendelson has spearheaded legislation to legalize recreational cannabis sales despite a Congressional ban on retail weed in the District. He’s also advocated for D.C.’s medical weed businesses by pushing to lift restrictions on dispensaries and growers amid a downturn in revenue for the industry.
