Legalization Efforts

The recent legislative session opened on February 5th, 2020 and are expecting Cannabis Legalization efforts to be a priority during this short-term in Hartford.

“We know there are very large numbers of Connecticut residents already traveling regularly to Massachusetts to buy this product and bring it home with them. New York is considering it this year. Other states around us have,” said Senate President Martin Looney, D-New Haven. “I don’t think we want to put our heads in the sand.”
