Medical Cannabis Regulations Approved in Connecticut

Connecticut’s regulations review committee has approved a set of regulations which will allow the state to move forward with its medical cannabisconnecticut-sign program, which was approved in 2011.

Under the new regulations, the Department of Consumer Protection will be tasked with reviewing applicants for both dispensaries, as well as for licensed cannabis producers; the number of producers will be limited to no more than 10, and no less than 3 – dispensaries will be limited at a later date, dependent on the number of registered patients. Those wishing to apply for a dispensary permit must be a Connecticut-certified pharmacist.

According to William Rubenstein, who’s the commissioner of consumer protection in Connecticut, dispensaries will begin opening in the state as soon as the spring.
