Connecticut: Democrats Revive Marijuana Legalization Plan In Budget Fight

Senate and House Democrats are lobbying for provisions to permit the retail sale of marijuana to adults as a way to address the state’s estimated $5 billion budget gap.

The proposal would initially permit state-licensed dispensaries to sell cannabis to non-patients, and then establish regulations to oversee the establishment of commercial producers and retailers. 

The proposed plan is estimated to yield about $60 million in additional revenue for the state next fiscal year, and $180 million by 2018-19.

Earlier this session, lawmakers debated four separate bills seeking to legalize and regulate the marijuana market. Unfortunately, all of these efforts were eventually tabled.
