Connecticut improves cannabis rules

Homegrow starts and patient fee eliminated in Connecticut

In Connecticut, the Department of Consumer Protection is implementing changes to the Medical Marijuana Program, eliminating registration fees starting from July 1, 2023. This decision aims to enhance accessibility and affordability for patients. By renewing their registration after this date, patients can continue benefiting from the program’s advantages, including access to a wider range of products, resources, and the expertise of clinicians. The fee to renew a patient registration was previously $25 annually.

Alongside this development, as of July 1, adults aged 21 and older can legally grow marijuana plants at home in Connecticut. However, the state’s Department of Consumer Protection is emphasizing responsible cultivation practices to ensure the safety of both individuals and the community. The law permits the indoor cultivation of up to three mature and three immature plants per individual, with a maximum of 12 plants per household.
