Connecticut Cannabis News


Connecticut cannabis legalization

Connecticut lawmakers approved the state’s cannabis legalization bill on June 17, 2021. The bill was signed into law by Gov. Ned Lamont (D) just a few days later, and cannabis legalization officially took effect in Connecticut on July 1, 2021.

Advocates noted that in a symbolic twist, the Connecticut Legislature’s vote to overturn cannabis prohibition marked the 50th anniversary of President Nixon’s declaration of the war on drugs.

Cannabis possession rules

  • Connecticut adults aged 21+ can possess up to 1.5 ounces of “cannabis plant material.”
  • Possession of up to 5 ounces is allowed at home in a locked container, or in a locked vehicle glove box/other compartment.
  • Home growing of cannabis is currently still illegal but starting on July 1, 2023, Connecticut adults will be allowed to grow up to six cannabis plants (three mature, three immature).
