On the one hand, the April 20 date of this week’s D.C. City Council approval of a medical marijuana measure could have been auspicious.

On the other hand — having just completed two back-to-back jury trials — I will get my hands on the legislation to see how much I agree with Oakland’s Harborside Health Center Director Steve DeAngelo, who responded: "I think the bill is deeply flawed, and I don’t think it is going to achieve the purpose, which is protect patients… The regulations may be setting up a system that drives patients back onto the streets."
