EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) East Hartford’s Planning and Zoning Commission Wednesday night gave approval to a medical marijuana dispensary to be built on Pitkin Street.

The more than 5,000-square-foot facility would go into an existing building at 100 Pitkin St. and be built by Constitution Care LLC.

The build is contingent on the company getting approval by the state Department of Consumer Protection to dispense medical marijuana.

The state is expected to grant licenses to dispensaries and production facilities alike, next month.
