Connecticut law allows medical marijuana patients to grow at home
by Gabrielle Caravetta
October 1st marks the date for legal at-home cannabis cultivation in Connecticut. Registered medical marijuana patients ages 18 years and older will be able to grow their own cannabis at home.
The new state law allows patients to cultivate a maximum of 3 mature and 3 immature plants at a time. Households with more than one registered patient can hold up to 12 plants. Growing must take place indoors, cannot be visible from the street and are for personal use only.
Connecticut’s 54,044 registered medical marijuana patients access their cannabis from the 18 dispensary facilities available state-wide. At-home cultivation will make cannabis more readily available for patients in Connecticut.
Starting July 1, 2023 all adults over the age of 21 in Connecticut will be able to grow at home under the same rules.
