Nine states are now regulating marijuana similarly to 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.
All three companion bills have now been approved by the policy committees to which they were assigned. However, the details will remain a work in progress until the bill is brought to a vote. Summaries of the bills are available here.
