Governor Lamont Signs Pot Legalization... What's Next?

This hour, Governor Ned Lamont has signed a bill allowing recreational use of cannabis.

She pushed the Lamont administration to accept more provisions she said would help communities harmed by the war on drugs, but some of her efforts resulted in special session drama during the vote on the proposal.
