Delaware committee approves legalization bill — on to the House floor!
Today, Delaware's House Committee on Revenue and Finance voted 8-3 in favor of HB 110, a bill to legalize, tax, and regulate cannabis for adults 21 and older. It now heads to the full House where it needs a three-fifths supermajority (25 votes) to advance to the Senate.
Last year, the legalization bill fell short of the needed supermajority in the House. So, it is very important your state representatives hear from you.
You can ready our full summary of the bill here.
Replacing cannabis prohibition with sensible regulation would reduce the number of cannabis-related arrests, free up law enforcement resources to focus on more serious crimes, and generate a new revenue source for the state.
Ask your state rep to stand with 61 percent of Delawareans and vote YES on HB 110. After you contact your representative, forward this message to your networks in Delaware — or share the action link on social media — and encourage them to do the same.
Together, we can end prohibition in the First State!
