Delaware On Track To Become First State To Legalize Marijuana By Legislation

The Adult Use Cannabis Task Force continues the effort to study the possibility

Delaware could very well live up to its nickname and become the first state to legalize marijuana through legislation, as the Adult Use Cannabis Task Force continues the effort to study the possibility. The task force, comprised of several state agencies, was formed earlier this year through a concurrent resolution passed by the General Assembly to study the outcome of regulating and taxing marijuana for recreational use in Delaware for adults 21 and older. The task force, co-chaired by State Senator Margaret Rose-Henry and State Representative Helene Keeley, has met once a month since its inception to discuss and study the possibility of legalizing marijuana recreationally.

Zoe Patchell, President of the Delaware Cannabis Advocacy Network, has attended every single task force meeting and said “progress is definitely being made,” and the state is “one step closer to legalization.” “Different agencies have been making recommendations based on their needs and areas of focus. For example, the Department of Health has recommended stringent and robust labeling as well as strictly organic cultivation for this plant, all of which we agree with,” Patchell said. “The Department of Finance informed the task force that the taxes will likely exceed the initial projections and net Delaware anywhere from around $25-27 billion in tax revenue annually.
