Starting Saturday adults 21-and-older in Connecticut can grow their own cannabis plants for personal use, FOX 61 reports. Under the state’s legislature-approved cannabis legalization law, individuals can cultivate three mature and three immature plants up to 12 per household.
Plants must be grown indoors, in locked areas, and unable to be accessed by anyone other than the consumer, qualifying medical cannabis patient, or caregiver.
Christina Capitan, with CT Canna Warriors, warned that consumers should be aware of the regulations within some cities and towns and rules for apartment building and federal housing.
“We pushed very hard for individuals to have the right to grow and not be reliant upon the producers that are licensed in our state. … Patients will have access to what they need. They will be able to grow the specific strains they need and the types that they want.” — Capitan to FOX 61
