Marijuana legalization panel eyes final report
DOVER, Del. (AP) — Members of a task force studying issues regarding possible legalization of recreational marijuana in Delaware have yet to decide on a final report about their work, even though the deadline to submit it has expired.
A meeting Wednesday to discuss the report was postponed because of bad weather.
Last week, a panel vote to release a report failed, then was declared by the co-chair to be nonbinding and not required. Opponents of legalization noted the lack of details in a proposed 16-page report. All state cabinet agency representatives on the task force abstained from voting or were absent. Democratic Gov. John Carney opposes legalization.
Panel co-chair Rep. Helene Keeley, a Wilmington Democrat, insisted that the report does not contain any findings or recommendations, and therefore does not require any consensus.
