Public housing can be evicted for using cannabis — even in places where the drug is legal recreationally or medicinally, like in Washington, D.C. and Maryland.
A new federal bill, introduced by Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), seeks to change that. The Sondra Battle Cannabis Fair Use Act would permit the use of marijuana in federally-assisted housing in states where it is legal. The legislation is named after a D.C. resident who suffers from fibromyalgia and was threatened with eviction over her medical marijuana use after she complained about the poor conditions of her apartment building.
Kojo chats with the woman who inspired the bill as well as advocates on both sides of the issue.
