Connecticut has approved six dispensaries to open to qualified medical marijuana patients.
“Recipients must be seriously ill patients who have been certified by their doctors as potentially benefiting from the use of medical marijuana and who have registered with the state’s medical marijuana program. Backers of the law, which was enacted in 2012, say it will help people who have cancer, Parkinson’s disease, AIDS, post-traumatic stress disorder and other debilitating conditions.
The Department of Consumer Protections drafted regulations last year that state lawmakers approved.
“With the selection of dispensary facilities, all necessary pieces of the medical marijuana program are in place and we are poised to provide patients with a safe and secure source of needed medicine,” Rubenstein said.”
