On February 26, 2021, the Judiciary Committee held a public hearing for S.B. 888 – An Act Responsibly and Equitably Regulating Adult-Use Cannabis – Gov. Lamont’s 2021 legalization proposal.
During the hearing, numerous advocates and policymakers discussed how prohibition has failed and the need for legalization as a more sensible, humane path forward. The Coalition implored the committee to advance the bill, but to first make revisions to make it stronger and more explicit on equity. You can check out our testimony here.
The bill is expected to be amended in committee.
Please write your legislators, urging them to support legislation to regulate and tax the sale of cannabis to adults in the 2021 session.
