Delaware Health and Social Services issued a request for proposal late in 2013 to open a pilot compassion center in Delaware next year. The Department will issue a permit to the compassion center to begin growing medical marijuana on July 1, 2014. The policy change will allow medical marijuana patients in Delaware to buy medical marijuana in a state-regulated center. Compassion center regulations include tight security requirements, such as around-the-clock video monitoring, financial accounting controls, random inspections, and requiring that center employees verify that patients are registered with the state before selling them marijuana. The center will only be allowed to cultivate up to 150 marijuana plants, and keep inventory of no more than 1,500 ounces of usable marijuana at the facility. The state's lone compassion center is set to open in September 2014, just west of Wilmington.
