Del.: Cannabis legalization bill has been introduced!
Yesterday, Representative Ed Osienski introduced a bill to legalize, tax, and regulate cannabis for adults 21 and older in the First State.
Last year, the legalization bill fell short of the needed supermajority (25 votes) in the House of Representatives to pass — though it did garner majority support. However, several new lawmakers were elected in the 2018 general election.
Now, it is time for Delawareans to pressure the General Assembly this legislative session to end cannabis prohibition. Regulation works. Ending prohibition would displace the illicit market, reduce the number of cannabis-related arrests, and generate new tax revenue for the state.
It is important for lawmakers to hear from as many constituents as possible. Please help spread the word by forwarding this message to your friends and family in Delaware. Together, we can end prohibition!
