A bill to legalize cannabis in Delaware failed to pass the House of Representatives, even though a majority of members voted for it.
Two House committees had previously advanced the reform proposal from Rep. Ed Osienski (D) in recent weeks, but it was ultimately defeated by the full chamber in a vote of 23 representatives in support and 14 against, failing to reach the required 3/5 supermajority to advance to the Senate.
The legislation would have allowed adults 21 and older to purchase and possess up to one ounce of cannabis, including up to five grams of cannabis concentrates. Home cultivation and cannabis delivery services would not have been prohibited.
“In the past two years, we have listened to the concerns from communities that have for decades been negatively impacted by the prohibition of cannabis, to try to undo some of the harm done,” Osienski said in closing remarks before the vote.
