The state of Connecticut says the selling of recreational marijuana in Connecticut will be legal in 2022. But some cities and towns are already getting a head start on making marijuana sales within their borders ILLEGAL. One such town is Newtown, where they banned in town sales on July 1--the same day recreational possession in Connecticut became legal. Newton First Selectman Dan Rosenthal explained why on "All Things Considered."
