Delaware Decriminalizes Recreational Marijuana Possesion

Delaware's passage of a marijuana decriminalization bill on Thursday makes it the 19th state - plus the District of Columbia - in the U.S. to allow the possession of recreational marijuana. After the Delaware Senate gave the nod of approval to the bill, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell almost immediately signed it into law.

In Delaware individuals can now possess up to an ounce of marijuana, use it privately, and face reduced penalties for using marijuana in a public space. Fines have been cut from a maximum fine of $1,150 and the possibility of up to six months in jail to a $100 fine, The Guardian reports.

The law passed without the support of a single Republican vote in either the House or the Senate, and will take effect in six months. Delaware was already one of 23 states to have legalized medical marijuana

19 states count Marijuana posession as not technically a crime on a criminal record, yet unlawul enough that a person can be charged a fee and have their marijuana seized - a bit different than "allow the possession of recreational marijuana."

What part of having marijuana taken away counts as "allow the posession" ?

Sometimes these journalists don't quite know enough about the technicalities of our world. Still good news though!
I'm disappointed that not a single a republican had the intellectual or moral honesty to vote in favor.

To be fair if they were to be intellectually and/or morally honest how could they pander to their base, the scared and willfully ignorant?
