DOVER, Del. (AP) — A bill seeking to legalize recreational marijuana use by adults in Delaware and establish a state-run pot industry has been defeated in the state House.

That was needed because it would impose a new tax. No Republicans voted in favor of the bill, and four lawmakers, including two Democrats, chose not to vote.

The bill sought to create a state-controlled and licensed pot industry.
