The 23 Connecticut Municipalities That Will or Won’t Allow Legal Weed Sales (So Far)
Recreational use of marijuana became legalized here in Connecticut as of July 1, 2021. With that, Connecticut residents can possess and use up to 1.5 oz of cannabis, and may also store up to 5 oz in a locked container at home, or transport it in a locked trunk or glovebox. Medical marijuana patients, as of October 1, 2021, can grow up to 3 mature, and 3 immature plants at their home. All adults 21+ in CT can home grow on July 1, 2023.
What does this mean? We're on the cusp of a whole bunch of cannabis-related businesses, retailers, and cultivators opening up around here. Recreational sales likely won't appear until late this year, but the behind the scenes activity has really ramped up.
Under Connecticut State Law, for a cannabis establishment to operate, it must have zoning approval from local authorities. According to the latest update at ct.gov, 23 Connecticut municipalities have chosen to approve, or prohibit. recreational marijuana sales and cultivation within their borders (So far).
