Delaware House decriminalizes marijuana possession
WILMINGTON, Del. — Delaware House lawmakers on Tuesday approved legislation that would treat simple marijuana possession and personal use by adults like a traffic violation, replacing criminal penalties with civil fines.
The bill passed the House by a 24-14 vote, and now heads to the Senate. Gov.
Some opponents said decriminalization would embolden drug dealers operating in a black market. Others say it could prevent police from initiating important searches on suspicion of simple marijuana possession.
Under language added by an amendment, Delawareans under the age of 18 would still face criminal penalties for possessing marijuana. Those between the ages of 18 and 21 would face criminal penalties upon their second arrest.
That change to the legislation caused angst among the bill's opponents and its supporters, who questioned why juveniles would be treated differently than adults when caught with pot.
