Legal Marijuana Sales Begin Today in Connecticut

Starting at 10am today (January 10) it’s legal for licensed retail outlets to sell marijuana and marijuana products to anyone 21 and older.

Although the legalization of marijuana was approved in 2021, today marks the first day of legal sales with nine licensed outlets planning to open their doors to everyone 21 and older, with more outlets to open in the coming days and weeks.

Under the new law consumers will be authorized to purchase up to a quarter of an ounce of dried flower, or up to seven 1-gram joints. Consumers will also be authorized to purchase up to 2 mL of vape cartridges, and edibles with up to 5mg of THC.

Below are the outlets opening for business today:

“I am proud of the hard work our team has done to meet the goal of opening adult-use sales in a safe, well-regulated market,” said DCP Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull. “We know that many people are excited to participate in this marketplace, whether as a business or a consumer, and we encourage adults who choose to purchase and consume these products to do so responsibly once sales begin on January 10.”
