DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware senators are set to vote on a bill expanding the decriminalization of simple possession of marijuana to juveniles.

Possessing an ounce or less of marijuana is currently a civil violation for anyone over 21 but a criminal misdemeanor for those under 18.

Nineteen and 20-year-olds currently are subject to a civil violation for a first offense but misdemeanor charges for a second or subsequent offense.

A bill to be voted on Tuesday makes possession of an ounce or less of pot a civil violation for a first offense in all cases. The bill would make a third or subsequent offense for anyone under 21 a misdemeanor.
