WebsiteConnecticut Medical Marijuana Program

Connecticut’s Medical Marijuana Program was signed into law in June 2012 after a 21-13 vote by the state Senate. In order to access the program, a patient must have been diagnosed by a physician as having a qualifying condition that could benefit from the use of medical marijuana. Once the physician has certified the patient as having a qualifying condition that could benefit from medical marijuana use, they will notify the state of your certification. Once the Department of Consumer Protection receives and reviews the certification, they will collect additional information and documentation to confirm patient residency, qualifying condition, and once approved, will send the registration certificate to the patient by mail. Per the rules of the Connecticut Medical Marijuana program, patients can access medical marijuana through one of nine state-licensed dispensaries or a primary caregiver. Connecticut medical marijuana patients may not have more than one primary caregiver at a time. Patients also may not cultivate their own medicine at home, and are not allowed to have more than a one month supply on hand at any given time. Connecticut does not offer reciprocity to out-of-state patients.

To access the Connecticut Medical Marijuana Program, a person must have a documented diagnosis of at least one of the following qualifying conditions:

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Cachexia (Wasting Syndrome)
Cancer
Cerebral Palsy
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Chron’s disease
Cystic Fibrosis
Epilepsy
