Your Legislators Need to Hear From You!

Citizen lobbying is a proven and effective way to convince legislators to act. There are no voter initiatives in Delaware and the only way to legalize cannabis will be through an act of the Legislature. Join the Cannabis Bureau of Delaware for our first Citizens’ lobbying event of the year in 2018. Follow us on Facebook and sign-up to receive e-mail updates on Lobby Day 12 and other upcoming events.  Here is what you can do to help Legalize Cannabis in Delaware in 2018.


1) Click Here to register for Citizens’ Cannabis Lobby Day

Add your name to the list of citizens coming out to support common sense cannabis policy.  With many large and well-funded organizations lobbying against HB 110, we need citizens to come together and stand in solidarity for sensible cannabis policy.

 


2) Find your legislators at legis.delaware.gov/

If you want to learn more about your Senator, your Representative, your district, and how to make and impact on Lobby Day; continue scrolling for citizen lobbyist resources, legislative profiles including cannabis voting history and contact information, and district maps. 


3) After the date for Lobby Day 12 is announced, make an appointment with your legislators. Use this example to help you:

“Hello, My name is ____; my group is having a citizen lobby day on ____________________, and I would like to set up an appointment to speak to my Representative/ Senator or their aid please”.

Please let us know your appointment time at info@delawarecannabis.org so we can add you to our schedule. 

 


4) Spread the word, get others signed up!  

 


5) Follow us on Facebook for updates and explore delawarecannabis.org to learn more ways you can get involved in your community.


6) Meet us in the lobby of Legislative Hall at on a date to be announced in January 2018. 


The clock is ticking.  If you support cannabis legalization; even if you’ve attended lobby day before, even if your legislators have taken a position one way or the other; it’s important that you come together with fellow cannabis legalization supporters to gather in solidarity, show the overwhelming support for legalization in Delaware, and call upon our legislators to vote “Yes” on HB 110.

We will be attending each meeting in groups; you will not be alone in this fight.

 


Let’s start the new year with an enthusiastic showing of support for cannabis legalization in the First State!  

Talking points will be provided, but feel free to prepare your own personal message, as well. 

Delaware has no voter initiative (referendum process), so directly engaging our local Representatives & Senators is the ONLY way the law will change.

Please Dress Professionally.
