US (CT): City poised to welcome cannabis cultivation

This month, the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission will consider new regulations permitting the sale and cultivation of cannabis in certain areas of the city.

The move comes as the state, which passed a law last year that allows the retail sale of adult-use cannabis, has started accepting applications for various businesses associated with the cannabis industry. Retail sales are not expected to start until at least the end of the year.

On May 19, the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission will take up zoning regulation amendments that clear the path to accept special permit applications for cannabis cultivators, delivery services, retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, micro-cultivators, transporters, and other businesses associated with the cannabis business and allowed by state law.

The commission debated the regulations at a meeting in April and generally limited businesses to commercial and light industrial office districts. With certain restrictions, retail sales of cannabis, along with medical cannabis sales, would also be allowed in the central business district.
