Following the city’s first medical marijuana sale earlier this week, Washington, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray said that the city should discuss the possibility of legalizing marijuana.

“I don’t have a position on whether to legalize it or not, but we should have that discussion,” Gray told News Channel 8.

He said that the topic is an important one because current prohibitionist policies result in harmless young people getting criminal records.

The mayor’s statement comes after growing call for reform in the District. On July 10, D.C. Councilmember and mayoral candidate Tommy Wells proposed legislation to remove criminal penalties for the possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.
