Ask your state representative to vote YES on HB 305!

Big news! HB 305, a bill to legalize and regulate cannabis for adults in Delaware, is scheduled for a vote by the full House of Representatives. The vote is scheduled for TOMORROW, Thursday, March 10. Debate begins at 2 p.m.

Email your representative and ask them to vote YES on HB 305, and then follow up with a call!

The bill needs to receive a supermajority (25 votes) to clear the House. It’s more important than ever that your lawmakers hear from you — ask them to legalize cannabis THIS YEAR by voting YES on HB 305!

HB 305 is the just, equitable cannabis policy that Delawareans deserve. It would legalize possession of up to one ounce of cannabis for adults 21 and older, promote equity and inclusion in the legal industry from communities disproportionately impacted by cannabis prohibition, and reinvest a portion of tax revenue into those communities through a Justice Reinvestment Fund. You can check out our full summary of HB 305 here.

A strong majority of Delawareans support legalization. Ask your state representative to listen to their constituents and vote YES on HB 305.

Together, we can end prohibition in the First State!
