Let’s start the new year with an enthusiastic showing of support for cannabis legalization in the First State!  Even if you've attended a lobby day before; even if your legislators have taken a position one way or the other; it's critical that you join with other legalization advocates on January 11 at Legislative Hall to stand in solidarity for sensible cannabis policy.  Let's make 2018 the year that Delaware becomes the first state to legalize cannabis through the legislative process.  


Citizen lobbying is a proven and effective way to convince legislators to act. There are no voter initiatives in Delaware and the only way to legalize cannabis will be through an act of the Legislature. Here is what you can do to help Legalize Cannabis in Delaware in 2018.

1) Register for Citizens' Cannabis Lobby Day 
delawarecannabis.org/lobby

2) Make an appointment with your legislators. Use this example to help you:

"Hello, My name is ____; I will be attending a lobby day Thursday January 11th, and I would like to set up an appointment to speak to my Representative/ Senator or their aid please".

(We have experienced team leaders to help you with talking points, and effective citizen lobbying techniques so you have an idea of what to expect if you have never lobbied before. Delaware has no voter initiative (referendum process), so directly engaging our local Representatives & Senators is the ONLY way the law will change. Don’t know who your legislator is? Look it up here: https:// legis.delaware.gov/, or Contact Us at info@delawarecannabis.org)

Please send us an email at info@delawarecannabis.org or text (302) 404-4208 with your appointment time so we can add it to our schedule. Those that preregister will receive a complementary, solidarity name tag the day of the event. 

3) Spread the word, get others signed up! (CO, WA, OR, AK, CA, MA, ME, NV & DC didn’t legalize themselves; we need people actively helping us engage our legislators to change the law. Share our website (delawarecannabis.org) & Facebook page.)

4) Meet us in the lobby of Legislative Hall on January 11th, at 9:00pm. (Talking points will be provided, but feel free to prepare your own personal message, as well.)

PLEASE DRESS PROFESSIONALLY.

5) Donate to Delaware CAN to fund events like Lobby Day and our other efforts to legalize cannabis in Delaware in 2018.
