House Bill 110 would legalize the recreational use of marijuana for adults ages 21 and older in Delaware. The legislation was introduced by a group of 14 lawmakers statewide. Less than an ounce of marijuana for personal use would be permitted and there would be a regulatory/taxation system setup.
Delaware is seeking to regulate marijuana similarly to alcohol, according to Dover Post. HB 110 is also known as the Delaware Marijuana Control Act. Meetings are scheduled later this week to advocate support of the bill. The goal of the meetings is also to educate the public and answer questions that they might have regarding marijuana and legalization.
