About a week after Delaware’s House of Representatives gave the green light to a bill that would legalize cannabis possession and sharing between adults, the state Senate reiterated the House’s decision and approved the measure. HB 371, which passed in a 13-7-1 vote, legalizes the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana for adults 21 or older, reported NORML.

The move comes on the heels of HB 372, also sponsored by Rep. Ed Osienski (D) and approved Tuesday by a House Appropriations Committee and is now heading to the floor. This measure aims to set up a specific regulatory framework for the recreational cannabis market.

“I’m looking forward to continuing working on this and I’m not really going to rest until we do have a legal regulated market,” Osienski said, as reported by 47 ABC.
