To meet with one of our licensed physicians, you do not need to undergo a prior doctor's evaluation.
During your appointment, your doctor will assess your condition(s) and determine whether you meet the state's medical marijuana requirements. If your doctor believes you would benefit from marijuana use, they will issue you a certificate.

Connecticut Medical Marijuana
With the passage of House Bill 5389 in 2012, medical marijuana became legal in Connecticut. This law established the medical cannabis program in the state, as well as rules for patients, dispensaries, and physicians. The state's first dispensary opened in South Windsor in 2014. Since 2011, when then-Governor Dannel Malloy signed Senate Bill 1014, Connecticut has decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana.
