Light one up (for your health) and for Connecticut, the 17th medical marijuana state in the United States of America. After a 10 hour debate, the state Senate voted 21 to 13 in favor of the marijuana bill, and once Governor Dannel P. Malloy signs off on the bill, Connecticut will have a medical marijuana program.
Yes, the state’s policy does restrict use to those with severe medical conditions and will be heavily policed. But more importantly, Connecticut joins Washington, D.C., Rhode Island, and New Jersey as the latest East Coast state to accept medical marijuana into its doctrine.
New York can’t be far behind.
