Delaware: Lawmakers Establish Marijuana Legalization Task Force

Dover, DE: Lawmakers have approved a concurrent resolution establishing a 23-member task force to study issues specific to the regulation of marijuana and to make recommendations to the legislature.

The Adult Use Cannabis Task Force will begin meeting in September and will issue a report to the General Assembly by January 31, 2018.

Legislation to regulate the adult use of marijuana was approved this session by members of the House Revenue and Finance Committee but failed to gain a floor vote. Polling data compiled by the University of Delaware finds that sixty-one percent of state voters favor legalizing marijuana.
