Connecticut recreational marijuana sales to begin next month

Written by on 13 December, 2022

Starting next month, Connecticut cannabis users will be able to legally purchase recreational marijuana, as adult-use sales will begin in January 2023.

As reviewed by Marijuana Moment the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) said “it has notified existing medical cannabis dispensaries that obtained a hybrid license that they may begin selling marijuana for the recreational market no earlier than 10 a.m. ET on January 10.”

Notably, marijuana users will be able to purchase up to a quarter ounce of cannabis flower or its equivalent per transaction. In addition, according to the 2022 MJBiz Factbook, it is estimated that annual sales in this market could exceed $375 million next year.

“I am proud of the hard work our team has done to meet the goal of opening adult-use sales in a safe and well-regulated market,” DCP Commissioner Michelle Seagull said in a press release.

“We know that many people are excited to participate in this market, either as a business or as a consumer, and we encourage adults who choose to purchase and consume these products to do so responsibly once sales begin on Jan. 10,” Seagull also said.
