Zoe Patchell, legislative correspondent for the Delaware chapter of NORML and Attorney Thomas D Donovan, who serves on the legal committee of the Delaware chapter of NORML will be on the Linwood Jackson Radio Show, Oct., 5. Join us live 2-3 @ http://www.wfai1510.com/programs/20
They will be on to talk about the bill Delaware is looking at to decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana. Also about how cannabis prohibition and enforcement is a costly, racially biased failed policy and why we need legislation reform immediately. How our tax dollars overcrowds our jails with low-level offenders and unfairly targets communities of color.
Someone charged with a misdemeanor marijuana possession in Delaware can face fines up to $1,150, six months in prison and the loss of their driver’s license, can be disqualified from public housing or student financial aid, lose or find it more difficult to obtain employment, lose custody of their child, or be deported, and a criminal conviction on their record when people are arrested for possessing even tiny amounts of marijuana. Those penalties are some of the most severe in the country.
Nineteen states, including nearby Maryland have decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana. The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws makes the point that this law should change in Delaware also.
