DOVER, DE (AP) – A bill legalizing recreational marijuana use by adults in Delaware cleared its first legislative hurdle. A Democrat-led committee voted along party lines, with one lone GOP vote, to send the bill to the House floor. It creates a state-controlled and licensed pot industry that supporters say will eliminate the black market while creating jobs and boosting the state’s tax coffers. Critics say it won’t eliminate the black market and will result in increased marijuana use among minors, more traffic deaths and injuries, and more people struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues.
