House Bill 356
151st General Assembly (Present)
Ready for Governor for action
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 16 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE DELAWARE MEDICAL MARIJUANA ACT.
This Act terminates the Medical Marijuana Act Oversight Committee ("Committee"). After Joint Legislative Oversight and Sunset Committee's ("JLOSC") thoroughly reviewed the Committee, JLOSC concluded that the Office of Medical Marijuana ("Office") oversees a functioning medical marijuana program without support from the Committee. Since October 15, 2015, the Committee has made only 2 recommendations to the Office relating to the medical marijuana program and has not made recommendations to the Governor or the General Assembly. Therefore, the Committee is not meeting a public need. The termination of the Committee is made under JLOSC's authority to terminate an agency under § 10214 of Title 29, and without opposition from the Committee, the Office, or the Department of Health and Social Services.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
