About Medical Marijuana in Connecticut

The Connecticut Medical Marijuana Program


Medical marijuana has been legal in Connecticut since 2012 with the passage of House Bill 5389. This law established the state’s medical cannabis program and rules for patients, dispensaries, and physicians. The first dispensary in the state opened in 2014 in South Windsor. Connecticut has decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana since 2011, after then-Governor Dannel Malloy signed Senate Bill 1014.

Connecticut has a strong and comprehensive medical marijuana program when compared with other states. While some states have strict medical cannabis laws that only allow people with a handful of conditions to seek this treatment, Connecticut has one of the longest lists of qualifying conditions among places where recreational use is illegal. Many medical conditions qualify for cannabis use, including degenerative spinal disorders, Parkinson's disease, and multiple sclerosis.
