November’s election results brought new opportunity to end cannabis prohibition in the First State. Several seats were flipped in the General Assembly, and there are now 15 states — including Delaware’s neighbor, New Jersey — that have legalized cannabis for adults.
The legislature is set to reconvene its 2021 session on January 12. Now is a great time to make sure lawmakers know their constituents want equitable legalization enacted next year.
Also, be sure to mark your calendars and join a virtual Delaware cannabis legalization panel discussion next week hosted by our allies at Delaware Cannabis Advocacy Network.
Here are the details:
When: Wednesday, December 16, 7-9 p.m. ET
Featuring keynote speaker: Major Neill Franklin (Ret.), a 34-year law enforcement veteran of the Maryland State and Baltimore Police Departments and Executive Director of Law Enforcement Action Partnership (LEAP)
For more information on the virtual event, you can contact the Delaware Cannabis Advocacy Network at (302) 404-4208 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help get legalization over the finish line next legislative year, please email your lawmakers and ask them to support legalization, then share this action on social media and encourage others to do the same.
Together we can end prohibition in the First State!
