FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. - Less than a year after the Connecticut General Assembly voted to legalize the use of medical marijuana, the state is holding public hearings on proposed legislation for palliative use.
The law, "An Act Concerning the Palliative Use of Marijuana," was passed by the state legislature and signed into law May 31, 2012. The law would allow for patients, older than 18 years, currently receiving medical treatment for "debilitating medical conditions" as described in the law, to apply for a temporary registration certificate for the use of medical marijuana.
The hearings began at 10 a.m. Monday at the Capitol Building in Hartford, and the committee will be accepting written testimony through the end of the week.
For written testimony, you must send an original and 10 copies of the testimony to William M. Rubenstein, Commissioner, Department of Consumer Protection, Room 103, State Office Building, 165 Capitol Ave., Hartford, CT 06106.
