Delaware Decriminalizes Weed


Delaware becomes 20th state to decriminalize weed.

Cannabis News: Decriminalized Weed for Delaware

At the end of last week, Delaware Governor Jack Markell quietly signed a bill that made Delaware the 20th state to decriminalize weed.  What does that mean, exactly?  Well, we’re here to tell you.

For now, it is still illegal to grow or sell weed in the state of Delaware.  BUT, you can have up to an ounce of green on your person will only garner you a $100 fine – which is less than most parking tickets.

Delaware is no stranger to marijuana, though, as they are one of the 23 states in which medical marijuana is legal.

Don’t go walking around downtown Dover in your best Bob Marley shirt with an O of kush in your pocket just yet, though.  The new laws don’t go into full effect for six more months.

The Marijuana Policy Project in Washington happily supports Delaware’s new and improved cannabis laws, saying that, “Marijuana is an objectively less harmful substance than alcohol, and most Americans now agree it should be treated that way.  Delaware has taken an important step toward adopting a more sensible marijuana policy.”
