The Delaware legislature’s Adult Use Cannabis Task Force, which is charged with examining the potential effects of legalizing recreational marijuana in the state, will most likely delay the release of its report until the end of February 2018.
On Oct. 4, 2017, the Delaware legislature’s Adult Use Cannabis Task Force met for the second time. Hoping to help craft a legalization bill that would pass the state legislature and gain gubernatorial approval, the group is responsible for determining the potential impacts of cannabis legalization.
According to a recent ruling by Superior Court Judge Paul R. Wallace, although the state of Delaware decriminalized marijuana possession in 2015, the state legislature failed to remove a law that made it a felony to simultaneously possess a firearm and a controlled substance.
