Hearing Planned On Medical Marijuana Rules

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The state Department of Consumer Protection has scheduled a hearing on proposed regulations for Connecticut’s new medical marijuana law.

Members of the public can testify Monday, beginning at 10 a.m. at the State Office Building in Hartford, on the wide-ranging package of rules for the program passed by the General Assembly and signed into law last year.

The regulations touched on numerous aspects of the program such as the rights and responsibilities of medical marijuana dispensaries, security requirements for those dispensaries and rules for manufacturing marijuana products.

The Department of Consumer Protection is expected to submit the final regulations to the legislature by July 1.

Patients receiving medical treatment for an applicable debilitating medical condition included in the law may qualify for a temporary registration certificate to legally use medical marijuana.
