Regulatory Status of Cannabis in Delaware

Although not fully legal in the state, cannabis is still viewed from a far more progressive perspective in Delaware than it is in more conservative states to the south. As early as 2011, the Delaware Medical Marijuana Act was signed into law. The statute enables medical patients with a certified physician’s statement attesting that it could benefit their condition to be eligible for a state identification card, which allows them to purchase Cannabis from an authorized dispensary.

Potential
for Legalization

In June 2019, Delaware’s first effort to fully legalize Cannabis for both medical and recreational use was initiated. While the legislation is generally viewed as revenue-generating, it’s also an indicator of societal recognition that the herb is here to stay and that laws prohibiting its possession and use have been dismal failures. 

The question has now become how to control it in a way that would promote public health and safety while freeing the law enforcement community to pursue serious criminals. Irrespective of whether this particular piece of legislation is ultimately approved, full legalization appears to be on the horizon in Delaware.

Delaware
Dispensaries

Unlike states where both medical and recreational Cannabis are legal, dispensaries in Delaware are not privately owned storefront operations. All sales must be strictly transacted at government administrated “Compassion Centers,” and there are only six of these in the entire state. Unfortunately, patients must pre-designate only one of these outlets as their “assigned dispensary” of choice and cannot purchase Cannabis from any of the other five.   

Luckily, since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, Delaware has allowed home delivery from its Compassion Centers directly to qualified patients. This process has worked so smoothly that legislation is now in the works that would make the delivery service a permanent facet of the state’s Cannabis law.

Legal
Restrictions

Although Cannabis possession is largely illegal in Delaware, penalties have been significantly reduced over the past several years. Simple possession of small amounts is regarded as a civil offense, which comes with a maximum fine of only $100. However, possessing amounts from one to six ounces is considered a misdemeanor, which can technically put you behind bars for three months and leave you with a fine of nearly $600. Unfortunately, more than 175 grams escalates the offense to felony status, which is punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

Industrial
Hemp

In concert with the Federal Industrial Hemp Farming Bill of 2018, the State of Delaware authorized the production and cultivation of hemp containing less than .01% THC for industrial and medical purposes. By classifying hemp as a grain, agricultural operations within the state were provided with the ability to commence hemp farming immediately, which has since developed into a highly lucrative industry.
