Qualifications for a Registration Certificate:
Qualifying patient must be a Connecticut resident.
Qualifying patient cannot be an inmate confined in a correctional institution or facility under the supervision of the Connecticut Department of Corrections.

The first step is to make an appointment with the physician treating you for the debilitating condition for which you seek to use marijuana. You will not be able to register in the system until the Department receives a certification from your physician that you have been diagnosed with a condition that qualifies for the use of medical marijuana and that, in his or her opinion, the potential benefits of the palliative use of marijuana would likely outweigh the health risks of such use. We began accepting physician certifications on October 1, 2012. Once your physician has certified you for the use of marijuana, the Department will seek additional information and documents from you demonstrating, among other things, your identity and residency to determine whether you are qualified under the statute to register with the Department. Once the Department receives the required information, we will make a determination as to whether you are eligible for a registration certificate and, if so, one will be sent to you.

The Commissioner of Consumer Protection has established a Board of Physicians consisting of physicians or surgeons who are board-certified in one of the following specialties: neurology, pain medicine, pain management, medical oncology, psychiatry, infectious disease, family medicine or gynecology. The board will recommend to the Department of Consumer Protection additional medical conditions, medical treatments, or diseases to be added to the list of medical conditions that qualify for the palliative use of marijuana. To be added as a qualifying condition, such recommendations will need to be approved by the Department and implemented by the adoption of a regulation. The Department of Consumer Protection’s regulations on medical marijuana have set out a process by which members of the public can petition the Board of Physicians to recommend additional medical conditions, medical treatment or diseases to the list of conditions that qualify for the palliative use of marijuana.

Connecticut Medical Marijuana Card Legislation

As of July 2021, adults 21 or over and medical marijuana card patients with qualifying medical conditions and a medical marijuana card can legally possess, purchase, and use cannabis.

Back in 2011 Senate Bill 1014 had been signed which decriminalized the possession of up to 0.5 ounces of cannabis. While those who offend this law are not penalized with jail time, they are required to pay increasing fines for repeated offenses.

In 2012 the state created the House Bill 5389, which legalized medical marijuana entirely throughout the state of Connecticut.

During 2021 Gov. Ned Lamont signed the Responsible and Equitable Regulations of Adult-Use Cannabis Act (RERACA), also known as Senate Bill 1201. This is a very encompassing bill comprised of various regulations. This will allow adults 21 or older to possess, purchase and use cannabis legally. The bill also allowed the legal possession of up to 1.5 ounces outside the home and up to 5 ounces in a locked container inside the home, in a vehicle’s glove box or inside the trunk or 7.5 grams and 25 grams of cannabis concentrates and other cannabis-infused products. This bill also allows for the expungement of marijuana possession convictions of less than 4 ounces, or six marijuana plants.

Connecticut Medical Marijuana Card, Cultivation & Possession Laws

Adults 21 or older can legally possess up to 1.5 ounces of cannabis, 7.5 grams of cannabis concentrates, or up to 750mg of THC on the individual. This is extended to being legally allowed to have 5 ounces of cannabis, 25 grams of concentrate, or up to 2.5 grams of THC in a locked container in the glove box, trunk of a vehicle, or at home. Connecticut medical marijuana patients and caregivers may possess up to 5 ounces total. State law does not allow exchanges or gifting of medical marijuana between entities, unless between a medical marijuana patient of Connecticut and their primary caregiver. While there are recreational and medical marijuana laws, adults who are not medical marijuana patients of Connecticut can be fined $100 if they are caught with more than 1.5 ounces of flower or 7.5 grams of concentrate with increasing penalties for repeated offenses.

Cultivating medical marijuana at your home in Connecticut is prohibited. Connecticut medical marijuana card patients and caregivers can only obtain medical marijuana from licensed cannabis dispensaries. Although, beginning in October 2022 patients will be able to cultivate up to six marijuana plants from the signing of SB 1201. Additionally, non-patient adults will be able to cultivate up to six plants starting July 2023.
