CONNECTICUT: Off of news that the state would be adding as many as three new medical cannabis dispensaries, 19 different groups have submitted proposals to be part of the potential expansion.
No details on who the applicants are or where the proposed dispensaries would be located have been released.
Many speculate they will be located in the more populated New Haven and Fairfield counties. Combined, the two counties account for over 50% of the state’s patient medical cannabis registrations, but only 2 of the 6 currently operating dispensaries are located there.
“We think we had a great response,” Jonathan Harris, the department’s commissioner, said. “We have a healthy pool from which to do our analysis and make an appropriate selection of up to three.”
