Marijuana laws in Connecticut
The State of Connecticut legalized medical marijuana for patients 18 years or older in 2012. Recently, as of July 2021, the use and possession of recreational marijuana also became legal for adults ages 21 and up. Additionally, if you are a patient who qualifies for a CT medical marijuana card, you are allowed to grow up to 12 plants per household. The State plans to legalize the same policy for adults 21+ starting in 2023.
Since the legalization of recreational cannabis, people in Connecticut can legally possess 1.5 ounces of marijuana at a time. Recreational dispensaries have yet to be licensed and opened; predictions of them opening is late 2022. As a result, individuals are unable to purchase marijuana within Connecticut at this time. However, individuals who have CT medical cards are allowed to purchase marijuana in the forms of edibles, flowers, pre-rolls, tinctures, topicals, extracts, and vape concentrates.
