Delaware Awaits Decision on Two New Marijuana Bills

Marihuana

Two marijuana bills are waiting on a decision from the Delaware General Assembly. One bill aims to expand the medical marijuana program to include debilitating migraines and glaucoma to the qualifying conditions list. Autism and pediatric sensory processing disorder were removed from the bill since Autism is already accepted.

The second piece of legislation would expunge previous marijuana possession convictions, according to the Cape Gazette. House Bill 374, regarding the expansion of qualifying medical marijuana conditions, was assigned to the Senate Health, Children & Social Services Committee on May 3. Senate Bill 197, regarding expungement of prior convictions was just introduced on May 8 by Senate Majority Whip Senator Greg Lavelle.

Senate Bill 197 has also been assigned to the Senate Health, Children & Social Services Committee. Both bills are awaiting decisions before either can move further.
