Have you read S.B. 11?
Good Morning Everyone. This week is a milestone in the Connecticut cannabis legalization process. Are you ready to support S.B. 11? Make sure to give it a read. This proposed bill will grant adults 21 and over the ability to grow 5 plants at a time. It also discusses how recreational cannabis would be implemented by July 2018. Hopefully soon, people will have a safer alternative to alcohol and we can see the end to the cannabis stigmas and prohibition. Time to wake up people.
If you are unable to make the trip to Hartford on Wednesday March, 22, 2017, please submit your testimonial. We all should share our support and experiences. (click more for details). Thank you Senator Looney!
