Yahoo! National News - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 03:33

In this photo taken Oct. 9, 2014, Adam Eidinger, chairman of the DC Cannabis Campaign, works on posters encouraging people to vote yes on DC Ballot Initiative 71 to legalize small amounts of marijuana for personal use, in Washington. Legalized weed would look far different in the nation's capital than it does in other places that have chosen to decriminalize marijuana. Even if voters approve it next month, as appears likely, it would remain banned in the roughly one-fourth of the District of Columbia that is federal land, so there would still be no lighting a joint in front of the Jefferson Memorial. The capital also remains under the thumb of Congress, which could quash legalization in D.C. regardless of what the voters want. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)WASHINGTON (AP) — A debate over legalizing marijuana in the nation's capital is focusing on the outsized number of arrests of African Americans on minor drug charges.
