Connecticut Sets Rules For Medical Marijuana Farms

FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – Medical marijuana farms and dispensaries could be up and running in Connecticut by early next year, according to the state Department of Consumer Protection.
The department will start the process of issuing permits for growing and distributing medical marijuana “in early September,” Commissioner William Rubenstein said last week.
“It is our hope to be able to make our selections for both producer and dispensary facility licenses by around the first of the year,” Rubenstein said.
The Connecticut General Assembly approved the law to allow medical marijuana in May 2012, and Gov. Dannel Malloy signed the act into law that same month. The Legislative Regulations Review Committee finalized the specifics of the state’s laws on Aug. 27, allowing the department to move forward with its permits.
The law allows doctors to prescribe marijuana to treat 11 conditions: cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord damage, epilepsy, cachexia, wasting syndrome, Crohn's disease and post-traumatic stress disorder. Residents can petition the state Board of Physicians to add more conditions to the list starting this fall.
Prescriptions are available only to Connecticut residents over 18 years old. The law also allows patients to have a “designated caregiver” who will be able to help buy and administer medical marijuana. Under state law caregiver must be approved by the state and be a family member or legal guardian.
