US (DE): Lawmakers approve bill to legalize cannabis sales

A Delaware House committee has approved the first of a pair of bills to legalize cannabis in the state, this one focusing on regulations for an adult-use program that’d be created if the complementary, simple legalization legislation is also enacted.

The House Revenue & Finance Committee passed the bill, HB 2 from Rep. Ed Osienski (D), in a 7-2 vote on Tuesday. It deals with issues like taxing cannabis products and promulgating rules for the market.

The other measure from the same sponsor, HB 1, is set to be taken up in a separate committee on Wednesday. These developments come just days after the revised proposals were introduced for the 2023 session.

Osienski took a similar, bifurcated approach for the reform last session and saw the legislature pass the basic legalization proposal while narrowly defeating the regulatory measure. Gov. John Carney (D) vetoed the former legislation, and the House didn’t have to votes for an override.
