Delaware Marijuana Legalization Task Force to Hold First Public Meeting

DOVER, DE — The task force created by the Delaware Legislature to study the best way for the state to regulate and tax marijuana for adult use will hold its first meeting on Wednesday in Dover.

The meeting will be open to the public.

The Adult Use Cannabis Task Force “shall study adoption of a model for regulation and taxation of adult-use cannabis in Delaware, including local authority and control, consumer safety and substance abuse prevention, packaging and labeling requirements, impaired driving and other criminal law concerns, and taxation, revenue, and banking issues.”

It must report its findings and recommendations to the governor and the General Assembly by January 31, 2018.

“We hope that this task force takes an objective look at states that have made marijuana legal for adults and develops an ideal path for Delaware to move forward with similar legislation,” said David Boyer, legislative analyst for the Marijuana Policy Project. “Adults in Delaware should no longer be punished for using a substance that is safer than alcohol, and lawmakers have signaled that they are willing to explore the options for regulating and taxing cannabis in a sensible manner.”

The meeting will be held in the State Capitol Legislative Hall, House Majority Hearing Room (H217), 411 Legislative Ave., Dover on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 10 a.m.
