Marijuana legalization effort defeated in Delaware House

Hopes for the bill went up in smoke as it fell four votes short of passage.

House Bill 110, which sponsor Rep. Helene Keeley said would have established the framework and commission to tax, regulate and distribute cannabis legally in Delaware, was defeated in a June 27 vote in the House.

The bill was modeled off existing laws governing the regulation of alcohol.

The bill garnered only 21 positive votes in the House, while 15 members voted against it. Five representatives abstained from casting a ballot.

The bill required a 3/5 majority, or 25 votes for passage.

1. You can only delay the inevitable for so long...

It wouldn't surprise me if 10-15 years from now, recreational marijuana is legal in all 50 states. It's just the way things are trending.

3. So much ignorance still exists when you see votes against it. ... or they see the

illegal markets as highly profitable for them.
