It’s a little hazy whether Delaware will become the 12th state to legalize recreational marijuana.
HB 110, a bill to legalize recreational weed, cleared a House committee in the General Assembly in June and it’s in limbo until the legislative session resumes in 2020.
The Marijuana Control Act is sponsored by Rep. Edward Osienski (D-Newark). It proposes to regulate and tax marijuana much like alcohol.
Driving under the influence of pot would remain illegal and only those 21 or older could buy or consume up to an ounce of weed. Unlike in some states, individuals won’t be allowed to grow their own marijuana.
