New CT laws proposed to legalize marijuana and expunge records for minor drug offenders

Connecticut House Democrats on Thursday announced a package of proposed legislation that would not only legalize recreational marijuana in the state, but would also expunge the records of people who have been convicted of low-level marijuana possession charges.

A report on the legislative proposals by the Hartford Courant said the legislators are proposing that the cultivation as well as sale of cannabis to adults over 21 would be legal in Connecticut.

The legislators involved said that if the bills are approved by the Connecticut General Assembly and Gov. Ned Lamont - who is on record as a supporter of legalization - cannabis could be sold in a pilot retail program in the state before the end of 2019.

The package of bills does not include legalization of home-grown marijuana, but legislators said that may be something that is considered as the bills are debated.
