The owners of popular Capitol Hill wine and spirits shop Schneider’s (the best liquor store in the District, according to City Paper readers) are among the many applicants vying for a city license to cultivate cannabis under the District’s new medical marijuana law, according to an article in the Washington Times:

Rick and John Genderson, owners of Schneider’s on Capitol Hill, had “absolutely no comment” when reached by phone about their intent to apply for three cultivation centers permits under the name “Organic Wellness,” according to letters of intent obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.

The brothers’ wine and spirits shop on Massachusetts Avenue Northeast is a landmark in the historic neighborhood known for its extensive selection and multigeneration history stretching to 1949.
