On the 50th anniversary of the war on drugs, the state Senate put the finishing touches Thursday on legislation to legalize marijuana in Connecticut.

On July 1, it will be legal for adults over 21 to have an ounce-and-a-half of marijuana, plus another five ounces in a locked container. Retail sales in Connecticut may begin as soon as next spring, under legislation the state Senate approved in a 16-11 vote after a 70-minute debate on Thursday morning.

Lamont, who campaigned in 2018 with a promise to legalize adult use of cannabis, announced within minutes of the vote that he looks forward to signing the bill into law.

“It’s fitting that the bill legalizing the adult use of cannabis and addressing the injustices caused by the war of drugs received final passage today, on the 50-year anniversary of President Nixon declaring the war,” Lamont said in a statement. “The war on cannabis, which was at its core a war on people in Black and brown communities, not only caused injustices and increased disparities in our state, it did little to protect public health and safety. “

The bill, which passed with nine senators absent in the special session, was the third time in 10 days that the Senate voted in favor of landmark legislation that will make Connecticut the 19th state, plus the District of Columbia, to legalize recreational marijuana.

The bill focuses on cannabis business opportunities for inner-city neighborhoods that have been targets for generations in the failed war on drugs. It also contains strong language designed to make it easier for labor unions to organize workers.

National marijuana advocates called the legislation a model for the country.

Sen. Gary Winfield, D-New Haven, co-chairman of the Judiciary Committee, who introduced the bill, noted that Thursday was the 50th anniversary of Nixon’s press conference declaring the ar on drugs. That long effort targeted the counterculture, the anti-Vietnam War movement and communities of color in urban areas

Man the whole transaction of weed is a special ops mission, the seller doesn’t wanna ride with it, you don’t wanna pick it up and when you do you’re watching behind your back driving home.

Police get a hard on when they think You got weed.

ehhhhhh don't think its that cuz CT is where everyone moves to to get outta the city like NYC/Boston. its right in between 2 or the biggest markets in America. They're doing it cuz its causing issues with neighboring states who have become legalized. CT governor, worked with Mass & NY governor to craft similar legislation.
