With Delaware once again considering legalizing recreational marijuana, Newark officials are beginning to prepare for the effects legalization could have on the city.

City Manager Tom Coleman said he plans to examine the city’s zoning code and determine whether Newark should enact restrictions on where dispensaries are allowed to open. Newark is also joining other municipalities in lobbying the state to share a portion of marijuana tax revenue in order to offset some of the costs the city could incur due to legalization.
