Delaware lawmakers reintroduce bill to legalize marijuana, and Attorney General Kathy Jennings, is supportive of the idea.
“People shouldn’t be punished for smoking marijuana in the privacy of their homes,” Jennings said in a statement. “While important questions around the specifics of implementation — including impaired driving — need to be answered, I generally support legalizing marijuana as the logical answer to an outdated policy that has caused more harm than good, particularly in communities of color.”
Under the legislation, adults over age 21 could buy and possess up to an ounce of marijuana, no more than 5 grams of which could be in a concentrated form such as that used in edibles and vape liquids. The legislation calls for initial authorization of 50 indoor and outdoor cultivation facilities of various sizes, 10 product manufacturing facilities, 15 retail stores and five testing facilities.
