My friend Greg H. has done and said it all to #Delaware
Speaker Schwartzkopf,

It is urgently important that we end cannabis prohibition and construct a taxed and regulated cannabis industry in Delaware. As you are well aware, Delaware has a proud tradition of using innovative taxation and regulation practices to allow business to thrive, but we must act now to bring this tradition to bear upon cannabis. There are three main reasons for a sense of urgency. Delay makes Delaware less competitive, less financially secure, and less safe.

Delay reduces our competitiveness. In industry, timing is critical; well-timed changes made by Delaware in financial regulation in the '80s, and alcohol regulation in the '90s, have yielded robust industries for the state in the 21st century. Changing cannabis regulation here and now would place Delaware ahead of the national and regional curve, allowing us to leverage our position amidst the country's most populous and wealthy region, to develop a robust cannabis industry here, and to punch above our weight in this emerging national market. Failure to act now ends the possibility of Delaware leading in the future cannabis industry.

Delay decreases the financial reward of legalization. Delaware faces a severe budget crisis, and ending cannabis prohibition can contribute to its resolution only if we act swiftly. With every moment of delay Delaware loses ground to other states as a destination for cannabis investment and tourism, and loses the security that would come from the multiple streams of taxation revenue possible from the cannabis industry, including sales, luxury, excise, and value-added taxation categories. What is more, the cost of continued enforcement of cannabis prohibition is staggeringly high, and fiscally unjustifiable given its low benefit to public safety.

Delay makes Delaware less safe. Prohibition has not eliminated the cannabis industry, but forced it into a black market where potential harms cannot be managed. Stakeholders in a legal, taxed, and regulated cannabis industry will work to ensure workplace safety, consumer safety, and public safety in Delaware. Legalization takes money out of the black market, and empowers Delaware to protect our children, patients, responsible adult consumers, industry workers, and public safety from the potential harms of an unregulated industry.

As a concerned citizen, and a father of young Delawareans, I urge you to act now. Legalize, tax, and regulate cannabis to make Delaware safer, more competitive, and more financially secure.

Best regards,
