The House Revenue & Finance Committee of Delaware passed HB 2, a bill from Representative Ed Osienski (Democrat). The house passed the bill with a vote of 7-2 on Tuesday. This particular bill deals with issues like taxing cannabis sales and outlines the laws, rules, and guidelines for suppliers in the market of cannabis.

Another hearing is supposed to follow today, which comes from the same sponsor, Rep. Ed Osienski. According to Kyle Jaeger, of Marijuana Moment,  reported “the bill ‘creates the legal framework to license adn regulate a new industry to create well-paying jobs for Delawareans while striking a blow against the criminal element which profits from this ever-growing and thriving illegal market for marijuana in our state.'”

This will now move to the next appropriate Delaware House committee and then potentially to the floor.

HB 1 removes all penalties for possession of a personal use quantity of marijuana, allowing adults 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of cannabis flower or 12 grams of concentrated cannabis products.

HB 2 creates a state-regulated system of licensed retail outlets, cultivation facilities and testing and set an excise tax on marijuana sales. The retail pot market would be regulated by a new Office of Marijuana Control Commission under the Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement.

9 Films to Watch On 4/20

Every holiday usually has some sort of activity attached to it. While 4/20’s activity is obvious, a movie marathon should definitely be added to the agenda.

In honor of this literal high holiday, here are nine films you should binge.

  • Friday

    A stoner classic that hasn’t aged a bit.

  • Half Baked

    They’re not drug dealers; they’re fundraisers.

  • Pineapple Express

    The entire cast is incredible, but Danny McBride steals the show.

  • Reefer Madness

    Sure, it was meant as a cautionary tale when it was released in 1936, but it’s hard to watch this classic now without laughing hysterically.

  • Dazed and Confused

    There are only three words to describe this iconic Richard Linklater film:  Alright, alright, alright.

  • Up In Smoke

    If someone writes a list about stoner movies, and a Cheech and Chong film isn’t on the list, does the list even exist?  The answer is “no.”

  • Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle

    Obviously, John Cho and Kal Penn deliver outstanding comedic performances, but is there a better actor playing himself in a cameo than Neil Patrick Harris as “Neil Patrick Harris?”

  • How High

    Magic weed gets Method Man and Redman accepted to Harvard. Hilarity ensues and gives new meaning to the phrase “higher learning.”

  • The Big Lebowski

    In addition to lighting up, fix yourself a White Russian (or two or four) as well.
