According to recent news releases, Connecticut General Assembly has scheduled a public hearing on Tuesday, to hear your thoughts about recreational marijuana.
The hearing would require the Department of Consumer Protection to create and administer a program that allows people 21 years and older to legally purchase and cultivate marijuana.
The bill also requires the Department of Revenue Services to create and administer a system for taxing the drug.
Republican Rep. Melissa Ziobron of East Haddam is co-sponsoring the bill. The ranking Republican House member on the Appropriations Committee, Ziobron says she wants to “promote a healthy and substantive discussion” of the issue.
Similar legalization bills proposed by mostly Democrats are awaiting action in other committees.
