As soon as I saw that both Maine and Massachusetts legalized cannabis, I knew it was just a matter of time before other states in the Northeastern U.S. started to talk more about legalization. One of the states in that part of the country that has been a hot button topic as of late is Connecticut. Will Connecticut legalize cannabis?
Massachusetts (Connecticut’s neighbor) is on par to have a new law for legalized cannabis that fully takes effect next year. This fact and Connecticut’s other fiscal issues has prompted the state’s lawmakers to seriously consider the possibility of legalizing the recreational use of marijuana for adults.
Several bills with bipartisan support that sanction the retail sale and cultivation of pot are currently progressing through the state’s General Assembly. The first bill drew dozens of supporters recently at a Public Health Committee hearing, many praising the proposed legislation as a way to regulate an illegal industry and potentially deliver millions of dollars for the state.
