Statewide Call-in Day 

Stand with us in solidarity on April 20 and make a call to your local elected officials asking them for their support on House Bill 110. Even if you have made a call before, regardless of how many times you’ve spoken with them, please make a call or write a personalized email on April 20th. 

Delaware doesn’t have voter initiative like the other 8 states + D.C. that have legalized for adults 21 and older...making direct contact with your elected official is the ONLY way the law is going to change in Delaware. Please take a moment today and make this important call.

Here is an Example of What to Say:
•Hi My Name is _________, and I’m from __________, Delaware. I’d like to leave a message for Representative _____________ asking them to vote ‘Yes’ on HB 110, to legalize cannabis for adults 21 and older. 

*You can choose one of the following for a supporting statement.*
House Bill 110 will:
•Immediately save the State and Taxpayers over $20 million dollars annually in law enforcement and criminal justice costs by ending the unnecessary arrests of otherwise law abiding citizens.
•Directly protect over 100,000 Delaware adults from arrest, and threat of being subjected to the criminal justice system.
•Reduce the strain on the criminal justice system and prison system.
•Create Economic Development by legalizing one of Delaware’s most lucrative cash crops. 
•Legalize 2 already existing industries – cannabis market and cannabis accessories market while greatly benefiting many other industries, such as real estate, restaurant, hotel, entertainment, tourism, legal, construction, HVAC, electrical, consulting, and more.
•Create many cannabis industry jobs in diverse fields, including Small Business, Agriculture, Management, Sales, Administration, Laboratory, Accounting, Security, and more. 
•Stimulate agricultural growth, especially in rural Kent and Sussex Counties. 
•Generate substantial revenue and help Delaware close the budget deficit.
•Directly fund schools and education, evidence based treatment programs for heroin and other drug addiction, and education for drug abuse prevention and intervention. 
•Stimulate the local Delaware economy in a much needed way including increase property value and demand. 
•Significantly reduce crime and violence associated with the criminal market and “Turf Control”.
•Help law enforcement focus on real public safety and crimes with actual victims. 
•Help reduce teen use with robust We Card programs, which has also reduced the use of alcohol and nicotine in Delaware.
•Help reduce opiate overdose fatalities and addiction to hard drugs. 

**Things to Know: 
✔️If you call after 5pm, you will leave your message on a voicemail, rather than with the receptionist, like during the day. 
✔️Make sure to identify yourself as constituent from their district.
✔️Keep your message brief.
✔️Please remember to be respectful to the person answering the call, and thank them for leaving your message.
✔️HB 110 is awaiting a vote on the House floor, so we are focusing on contacting our Representatives, but it still needs to pass the Senate, as well, so we ask that you contact them both your Representative and your Senator.
