Connecticut’s recreational marijuana law was passed in 2021, with the first store opening in January 2023. Under the law, those 21 and older can possess up to one and a half ounces of marijuana in public and up to five ounces in a locked container. They can also grow up to six plants for personal use, with a maximum of three mature plants.

Marijuana and marijuana products can be purchased legally through licensed retail outlets and dispensaries, which are supplied by licensed growers and processors. Legal marijuana must be tested through a licensed marijuana testing lab. Medical marijuana was first legalized in Connecticut in 2012, with dispensaries opening the following year.
