State Launches New Cannabis Website
The state has unveiled a new website to provide up-to-date information on the rollout of legalized cannabis in Connecticut, ranging from basic information about the law that took effect on July 1 to resources for prospective marijuana-related businesses. While portions of the new law have taken effect, including making it legal for individuals age 21 and older to possess or consume up to 1.5 ounces (42.5 grams) of “cannabis plant material,” several key parts of the legislation don’t begin for another year or two. The establishment of retail stores, for example, isn’t expected until the end of 2022.
“This new website will be an important resource for consumers and interested business owners,” said Department of Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull, in a statement. “We will continue to provide information about the licensing and application process as it becomes available, and we are committed to a clear and transparent process.”
