Delaware Medical Marijuana Program Info

Welcome to the Delaware Medical Marijuana Program website. The Division of Public Health (DPH) implemented Title 16, Ch 49A of the Delaware Code; the Delaware Medical Marijuana Act regulates the medical use of marijuana in Delaware.

Physicians may authorize a patient to use marijuana to treat symptoms of cancer, multiple sclerosis, HIV and AIDS, decompensated cirrhosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, agitation of Alzheimer’s disease, autism with aggressive or self-injurious behavior, intractable epilepsy, or the physical manifestations of post-traumatic stress disorder. Conditions that cause severe, debilitating pain, wasting syndrome, intractable nausea and seizures also fall under the state’s medical marijuana law. More information, including the patient and caregiver applications, can be found under the Patient section below.

Delaware has one medical marijuana distribution center, known as a compassion center, located in Wilmington. The Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) has published a request for proposal (RFP) for up to two more centers. Information on the current center and the RFP can be found under the Compassion Centers section below.

Documents related to the Medical Marijuana Act Oversight Committee’s work are located in the Oversight Committee section below. These include by-laws, meeting agendas and minutes, future meeting announcements, annual reports, changes in the law or regulations (proposed and final), petitions to consider additional qualifying medical conditions, and other documents needed by the committee to conduct business.
