Legalization & Taxation Bill Gets a Hearing in Connecticut

Connecticut representatives proposed an amendment to another bill that would legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana for adults’ use. This provided members a historic opportunity to debate the issue on the House floor, but the amendment did not actually receive a vote.

 

However, there is still a very real chance for ending marijuana prohibition in Connecticut this year.

 

Last month, Connecticut Democrats revealed a budget proposal that included the regulating and taxing of marijuana, demonstrating that legislative leaders in the majority party understand regulating marijuana like alcohol is a necessary part of a responsible budget solution.

 

If you are a Connecticut resident, please call or email your legislators and urge them to support ending marijuana prohibition.
