Full story after the jump.

The administration of Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont (D) on Monday launched a website intended to update residents with information about the state’s new adult-use cannabis laws. The governor said the site will “be an important resource for people who have questions about the new law or who might be interested in starting a new business in this market.”

“Passage of this new law was an important step forward in ending the failed war on drugs as adults over the age of 21 can now legally possess and consume cannabis in Connecticut. Now begins the important work of standing up a fair, well-regulated marketplace for businesses and consumers that prioritizes public health, safety, and social equity.”Lamont in a press release  

Department of Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull called the website “an important resource for consumers and interested business owners” which will provide up-to-date information on the licensing and application process, noting that state officials “are committed to a clear and transparent process.”

Portions of the state’s adult-use cannabis law took effect July 1just nine days after Lamont signed the measure into law.

The website includes information on what parts of the law are currently in effect and the state’s medical cannabis program.

The equity, diversion, and inclusion section of the site notes that the War on Drugs “ravaged” the state’s communities.
