The Delavan Police Department believes it is important to educate the public and with that being said, here are the basic guidelines for adult cannabis use.

Beginning January 1, 2020, the use of marijuana or cannabis infused products will be legal for individuals 21 years of age or older.  A person 21 years or older will be allowed to possess the following:

  • 30 grams of raw cannabis flower
  • Cannabis infused products containing up to 500 milligrams of THC
  • 5 grams of cannabis concentrate

No person under the age of 21 is allowed to purchase, use, possess, transport, grow, or consume cannabis except where authorized by the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Act or the Community College Cannabis Vocational Pilot Program.

The Delavan Police Department would like to remind residents that the only lawful place to consume cannabis or cannabis infused products is in your private residence or on your own personal private property, outside of pubic view.  It is illegal to consume cannabis products or smoke cannabis in a public place as well as in motor vehicles.  It is also illegal to transport cannabis within a motor vehicle unless the cannabis is in a sealed, odor-proof, and child-resistant container.

The Delavan Police Department urges those individuals wishing to consume cannabis to be smart and not get behind the wheel and drive impaired or intoxicated.  We would like to remind residents to be respectful of their neighbors while ingesting cannabis or cannabis infused products.  Please feel free to call us at 244-8226 if you have any questions or concerns.
