Delaware's first medical marijuana dispensary was scheduled to open this month but some construction issues have delayed opening till June. 200 Delawareans have their medical ID cards for marijuana and many more have signed up, though they have the right to possess pot they have no legal means of purchasing it. The state's medical marijuana program been delayed since it's authorization in 2011, due to the fear of federal interference.
A spokesman for Markell said the governor is "committed to implementing a reliable program that minimizes the risk of federal interference and meets the needs of medical marijuana patients.
"The priority now is getting the first dispensary up and running well," Markell spokesman Jonathon Dworkin said in an email.
