Social Equity

  • Connecticut’s Social Equity Council has identified 215 communities deemed Disproportionately Impacted Areas or areas of the state with higher drug convictions. Applicants from these areas will be prioritized for marijuana sales licenses and special equity programs. The adult use license structure will include three license types, micro-cultivator, food and beverage manufacturer and delivery that have lower barriers to entry and are designed to promote equity.

Connecticut Adult Use Dates

As of February 18, 2022, the Commissioner of Consumer Protection has increased the monthly allotment of medical marijuana for registered medical marijuana patients from 3.0 ounces to 3.5 ounces per month. Patients who have an allotment that has been restricted or expanded by a certifying practitioner will remain unchanged. A dispensary may dispense a portion of a qualifying patient’s monthly transaction limit not to exceed 2.5 ounces and may dispense the remaining portion at any time except that no qualifying patient or primary caregiver shall receive more than their approved monthly quantity in a one-month period.

Minors under the age of 18 may purchase medical marijuana provided the minor’s guardian/caregiver confirms palliative use of marijuana from 2 (two) physicians. One physician must be the patient’s primary care provider. The other physician must be board certified in an area of medicine involved in the treatment of the debilitating condition for which the qualifying patient will be certified. Caregivers must be 18 years or older and a physician is responsible for assessing whether the patient needs a primary caregiver.
