Patients face some supply issues in Connecticut cannabis roll-out

Connecticut patients notice medical cannabis shortages

Less than a month after the recreational sale of cannabis started in Connecticut WTNH reports that medical some medical cannabis patients are noticing shortages. Seven dispensaries opened across the state on January 10th for the launch of adult-use cannabis sales. The demand has caused some dispensaries to sell out of certain cannabis strains leaving some patients unable to find what they need. There are others who notice in their town that recreational menus have more variety than medical menus. Connecticut has limited sales of adult-use cannabis to 7 grams of flower per purchase to prevent shortages for patients. While the Department of Consumer Protection has said that there aren’t any official shortages of products that have been historically available in the Connecticut medical marijuana market they will will keep an eye on any developments.
