Consumer Protection Announces New Medical Marijuana Dispensary Facility Licenses

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018 – The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) announced today the names and locations of nine (9) new dispensary facilities that will be licensed by the state’s Medical Marijuana Program. These new facilities will join nine (9) existing dispensary facilities, and four (4) producers as licensed facilities with the program. A Request for Applications (RFA) was issued at the beginning of 2018 for three (3) to ten (10) dispensary facilities.

 

The Medical Marijuana Program in Connecticut has grown significantly since the last time new facility licenses were awarded in January of 2016. At that time, there were 8,228 patients benefiting from the program. Today, there are 30,448.

 

“This program has been thoughtfully expanded since the bill was signed in 2012, and medication became available to patients in 2014,” said Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull, “Originally, there were only 11 conditions that would qualify adults for medication, and there were very few patients. Today, there are 31 conditions for adults, eight for patients under 18, and over 1,000 certifying practitioners. This medication has improved the quality of life for tens of thousands of patients. We look forward to working with our partners as the program continues to expand.”

 

The nine (9) new dispensary facilities were chosen through a competitive process, from the 73 applications received by DCP in response to the RFA.
