Support Cannabis Legalization in 2019

Help us fight the well-funded opposition to cannabis legalization

Donate to support cannabis legalization

Our staff is all volunteer, but we need the resources to stand up to the well-funded opposition lobbying against cannabis legalization in Delaware.  

Your contribution to Delaware CAN helps fund public education and Town Hall events, outreach and advocacy programs, and all of our efforts to legalize cannabis for the citizens of Delaware. 

 


 Volunteer with Delaware CAN 

Delaware CAN is a grassroots organization with an all-volunteer staff.  Dedicated advocates have fueled the movement in the First State and positioned Delaware to legalize cannabis in 2019.  But our work is not finished and we need supporters from across the state to take action in their communities to ensure that our legislators follow the will of the people and pass legislation to legalize cannabis for all adults. 

To learn what you can do in your community to help legalize cannabis, contact our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@delawarecannabis.org

Tue
Citizens’ Cannabis Lobby Day 20 @ Legislative Hall
Mar 12 @ 10:30 am – 4:00 pm

Join us March 12th to help us legalize cannabis for all adults 21 and older.

When: Tuesday, March 12th, 2019 Orientation begins at 10:30am
Where: 2nd Floor Senate Hearing Room – Legislative Hall 411 Legislative Ave. Dover, Delaware 19901

We are headed back to Legislative Hall the first week the Delaware General Assembly is back in session, which only meets Tuesday – Thursday January through June 30th. We need your help to legalize cannabis for ALL adults. Stand with us and help send a strong message to our General Assembly that their constituents want them to introduce a new legalization bill, and end cannabis prohibition in the 1st State. Delaware doesn’t have voter initiative like the other states, so citizen lobbying is the ONLY way to legalize cannabis in Delaware.

Important INFO:
– You do not need tickets for this event, and it is Free and Open to the Public. However, we ask that you please register to help us coordinate the event better; we’ll make you a complementary printed name tag if you pre-register before 3/5/19.
– We will be holding a training at Legislative Hall the morning of Lobby Day (1/10/19)m to go over talking points, and help prepare everyone for our meetings with our elected officials.
– We have volunteers who will help you make an appointment with your legislator (email volunteer@delawarecannabis.org or call/text (302) 404-4208) or see below for further instructions on making your own appointment.
– There is Parking for Legislative Hall on Federal St. next to the building.
– Legislative Hall has a cafeteria, but you may want to bring a snack, as it is a long day.
– We will have a reception / networking / debrief session following the lobby day. TBA
– We ask that everyone please dress business casual – professional to lobby, and wear green if you can.
– If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at info@delawarecannabis.org or (302) 404-4208.

1) Register for Citizens’ Cannabis Lobby Day 20
http://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, March 12th, and I would like to set up an appointment to speak to my Representative/ Senator or their aide 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 volunteer@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, VT & DC legalized cannabis with the hard work of citizens like you; we need people actively helping us engage our legislators to change the law. Share our website (delawarecannabis.org) & Facebook page.)

4) Meet us in 2nd Floor Senate Hearing Room in Legislative Hall on March 12th, at 10:30am. (Talking points will be provided, but feel free to prepare your own personal message to share with your legislator, 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 2019.

Citizen lobbying is a proven and effective way to convince legislators to act. 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 10th at Legislative Hall to stand in solidarity for sensible cannabis policy. Let’s make 2019 the year that Delaware becomes the first state to legalize cannabis through the legislative process.
