A new survey shows that Washington D.C. voters are embracing cannabis. Not only do voters want the drug to be legalized and available to everyone who wants it, they also oppose the district’s restrictive measures.

Marijuana Moment reports the survey was commissioned by I-71 Committee, an organization of citizens and people involved with the cannabis industry who support legalizing weed.

While Washington, D.C. is concerned with the loophole and is looking for ways to close it, according to the survey, gifting isn’t an issue for voters. Seventy-six per cent of respondents reported they would prefer that the government reformed laws to create a functioning market instead of closing it down altogether.

Marijuana gifting has been a hot-button issue over the past year, particularly in states that have decriminalized the drug, but have yet to establish a functioning legal market. The term refers to the practice of gifting people cannabis in exchange for purchasing a different item, say a T-shirt or a hat, and it’s allowed a variety of businesses to thrive.

States such as New York and Connecticut have been finding new ways to cope with cannabis gifting, such as sending cease and desist letters to businesses.

D.C. decriminalized marijuana in 2015, allowing residents to carry up to about 56 grams of cannabis.
