Officials in Connecticut launched a new website to provide updated information on current cannabis laws and policies in Connecticut—especially adult-use policies. On July 5, Governor Ned Lamont released a press release detailing the provisions that can be found on the website, and how it can help residents navigate the new cannabis industry legally.
The information spans basic information about the adult-use freedoms that took effect on July 1 to resources for businesses that are seeking licenses for operation.
“Passage of this new law was an important step forward in ending the failed War on Drugs as adults over the age of 21 can now legally possess and consume cannabis in Connecticut,” Governor Lamont said. “Now begins the important work of standing up a fair, well-regulated marketplace for businesses and consumers that prioritizes public health, safety and social equity. We know the public will have a lot of questions about this process in the coming months, and this website will be an important resource for people who have questions about the new law or who might be interested in starting a new business in this market.”
The top categories currently on the website are the following: Basic Information and the Law, Business Information, Public
