Medical Marijuana Bill Passes Deleware Senate.
Deleware Senate Bill sponsor Margaret Rose Henry gets Senate Bill 17 passed through State Senate
The Delaware Senate passed legislation today that would legalize the use of marijuana to treat severe medical conditions. All but three of the chamber’s 21 members voted in favor of Senate Bill 17, which would set up a network of tightly regulated marijuana dispensaries that could sell the drug to authorized patients. Lead sponsor Sen. Margaret Rose Henry, D-Wilmington East, said the legislation is about providing relief to the seriously ill, not legalizing drugs.
