The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Connecticut

In 2012, Connecticut medical marijuana became legal owing to a Marijuana Palliative Use Act (HB 5389). Some new items have been added to the legislation that has lately made the Connecticut MMJ program much more lenient. In order to purchase or possess cannabis products, patients must receive a medical marijuana card issued by the Consumer Protection Department of Connecticut. Patients will be permitted to hold up to 2.5 ounces per month once their MMJ card is in hand. Note that at this moment, home cultivation is not permitted. Patients must be approved for the medical program by a licensed physician in the state of CT. That’s what Veriheal provides directly to you.

Additionally, for a restricted range of circumstances, CBD oil is now accessible to medical marijuana patients across the country.
