Delaware Medical Marijuana Laws

Delaware — Gov. Jack Markell signed SB 17 on May 13, 2011. The bill is codified at Title 16, Chapter 49A of the Delaware Code. Following a February 2012 letter from the U.S. attorney for Delaware, Gov. Markell placed the dispensary portion of the bill on hold. Gov. Markell announced on August 15, 2013 that he would restart the program, but he did so in a much more restrictive manner than provided for in the law. The state will allow a single pilot dispensary, which could possess only up to 150 plants and have up to 1,500 ounces of marijuana.

Qualifying for the Program: To qualify for an ID card, a patient must have a qualifying condition and a physician’s statement that the patient is “likely to receive therapeutic or palliative benefit” from the medical use of marijuana.
