DelawareWith the failure of Democratic Gov. John Carney to either sign or veto two bills on his desk, Delaware became the latest state to legalize cannabis on April 22. Carney allowed House Bill 1 and House Bill 2 to become law without his signature.

House Bill 1 eliminates criminal and civil penalties for the possession of personal-use quantities of cannabis flower and other products, including marijuana paraphernalia, for those age 21 or older. The use of cannabis in public remains penalized under the law, and underage possession of cannabis remains subject to civil fines. House Bill 2 establishes a licensing system to regulate production and retail sales. It calls for the issuance of up to 30 initial retail licenses, 30 manufacturing licenses, 60 cultivation licenses, and five testing licenses. (NORML, WHYY)
