Marijuana use in Delaware was made legal on July 1, 2011, but only is allowed if a physician certifies in writing that the person has a specific debilitating medical condition and that it would benefit them to use marijuana. The patient must send a copy of the written certification to the State Department of Health and Social Services and from there the Department will issue the ID card once all the information is verified. The patient must also be in compliance with the law, however, it does not permit the patient or caregivers to grow marijuana in their home and can only be purchased at compassion centers, be 18 years old and older, only allowed 3-ounces in a 14 day period and be registered at only one compassion center.
