Eight 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.

At this time, four separate bills have been introduced, and each are making their way through the legislative process. We will be updating this page as things progress, but at this time, please click below to see each of the bills.
