Before he resigned and admitted to stealing $350,000 from the District, former D.C. Council member Harry Thomas Jr. expressed concern that much of the city's medical marijuana cultivation would take place in a small slice of his Northeast ward.
"As we all know, historically Mr. Barry has been a defender for the underserved and those whose voices are not heard," said Albrette "Gigi" Ransom, an advisory neighborhood commissioner in Ward 5 who supports "the spirit" of multiple ex-offender bills before the council.
She noted that the four at-large council members should be able to provide assistance during the process.
