Several bills this past legislative session were introduced to legalize recreational marijuana in Connecticut, but they didn’t get out of committee. Some say that they are hopeful that Connecticut’s lawmakers will take a closer look at its potential for bringing in needed revenue for the state. Some are also attempting to make legalization part of a final budget bill.
