CONNECTICUT: If all goes as planned, one of the state’s first legal marijuana farms will be growing and harvesting plants on Burr Court in buildings tucked between Fairfield Avenue and Interstate 95.
And Councilwoman Susan Brannelly, D-130, who represents the neighborhood, isn’t just OK with the project. She’s enthusiastic about it.
“It would be a real benefit for the city,” said Brannelly, who toured the site when owner Joe Palmieri was successfully seeking his zoning approvals in October. “I hate to see people turn their backs on a legitimate business. We could be on the ground level of something that’s really very revolutionary in our world.”
