Nine states are now regulating marijuana like alcohol, but all of those measures were enacted by ballot initiative, where the public votes on a single proposal. Since Connecticut’s Constitution does not allow for ballot initiatives, we are working to become the first state where the legislature passes a bill to regulate marijuana.

When the Connecticut General Assembly convenes in January 2019, the state will be under the leadership under a new governor, Ned Lamont, who strongly supports regulating marijuana. Check back in January for updates on legislation!
