420 with CNW — Home-Grow Cannabis Law Takes Effect in Connecticut

Starting this week, adults aged 21 years and older in Connecticut have been granted the legal right to grow their own cannabis for personal use, as per the latest provision of the state’s marijuana legalization law. As a reminder of this policy change, the DCP released a notice that emphasized the value of responsible cultivation and provided a thorough rundown of the requirements that must be adhered to.

Some of the key points that adults should be aware of regarding cannabis home cultivation include:

  • Individuals aged 21 and older can grow a maximum of six marijuana plants, with only three of those plants allowed to be in a mature state for personal use.
  • Regardless of the number of adults residing together, the household plant limit is capped at 12 plants.
  • The cultivation must take place indoors, away from public view, in a secure location inaccessible to minors and pets.
  • After harvesting, adults are strongly advised to store the cannabis in child-resistant packaging to ensure safety.

The legalization law that is being put into effect allowed medical cannabis patients the opportunity to start growing their own plants in October 2021, and that privilege is now being extended to all adult users over the age of 21.

Interestingly, home cultivation legalization comes some six months after Connecticut’s first recreational cannabis retailers opened, resulting in a significant expansion of the market. Recreational sales have risen to previously unheard-of heights and, as of May, have surpassed those for medical use.

Recently, Governor Ned Lamont signed a cannabis omnibus bill that introduces several reforms. Included in this are limitations on consuming hemp-derived goods, the creation of a new Connecticut Office of the Marijuana Ombudsman, and the issuance of permits for cannabis businesses to hold off-site events. Also included in the measure are definitions of edible marijuana products and revisions to the state lottery’s licensing policies.

In the meantime, the governor approved budget legislation last month that includes clauses to give state tax relief to legalized cannabis entities that are now forbidden from taking federal deductions under IRS code section 280E.

Moreover, a bill to improve the state’s cannabis legalization and expungement statute was approved by the House of Representatives in May. The measure calls for the release of people who are currently in prison on cannabis-related offenses as well as requests for judges to impose lighter terms or drop charges for a wider variety of cannabis-related convictions.

Similarly, the House approved a bill in May decriminalizing the possession of psilocybin mushrooms; however, the Senate did not consider these proposals before the legislative session ended.

The commencement of marijuana home cultivation is likely to create a bigger demand for indoor cultivation equipment in the category of what Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX) makes. If this happens, suppliers will likely a spike in sales.
