19 Applications for New Dispensary Licenses in Connecticut
Connecticut received 19 applications for dispensary licenses by the Sept. 18 deadline, showing healthy business interest in the state’s growing medical cannabis industry.
The state is looking to add dispensaries in two particular counties: New Haven and Fairfield. Roughly 50% of Connecticut’s 5,357 registered medical marijuana patients live in those counties, but New Haven and Fairfield each only have one dispensary.
The state will award up to three more dispensary licenses, adding to the six it has already granted.
The names of applicants and details of the proposals were not released. The state Department of Consumer Protection said
