Marijuana offenders could get second chance in eyes of Delaware law

“It’s a question of equity,” said Senate Minority Whip Greg Lavelle, R-Sharpley, the bill’s lead sponsor. “If you were convicted of having a half ounce of marijuana three years ago, you would have to disclose that on a job application,” he said. “But someone who gets cited for the same thing tomorrow would not. That’s not fair.”

A bill introduced Wednesday [May 2nd, 2018] would allow those busted for using marijuana or possessing less than an ounce of the drug to have their rap sheet expunged if their conviction occurred before Dec. 18, 2015. That’s the date a new state law took effect that decriminalized marijuana, downgrading possession of an ounce from a criminal offense to a civil violation, like a parking ticket.
