Connecticut does not accept out-of-state medical cards, but an adult medical patient can visit a legal dispensary to purchase with an ID.

That depends on the State you visit; some states accept out-of-state MMJ cards while others do not. We recommend checking local medical cannabis rules and regulations before traveling.

SB 1201 was signed into law in June 2021. Home cultivation is permitted under the new law, but adults are not legally permitted to grow until July 2023. At that time, an adult can grow up to six plants or twelve plants per residence.

Connecticut state law prohibits the use of cannabis in a public place, including for medical patients. No marijuana may be used in the following places:

  • In a motor bus, school bus, or another moving vehicle
  • On Employer property
  • Public or private school grounds, dormitory, college, or university property
  • On cannabis dispensary premises

CT medical marijuana laws require all qualified residents to obtain a Connecticut medical marijuana certificate before being allowed medical marijuana use.
Patient ID card Requirements are as follows: 
  • Connecticut medical marijuana patients must be 18 years of age or older to visit a medical marijuana dispensary.
  • Only those who are able to prove Connecticut residency can apply for medical marijuana treatment via Connecticut’s medical marijuana program (valid driver’s license, Government ID, utility bill)
  • A Connecticut resident must also have medical history showing a diagnosis that qualifies a doctor to recommend them as a patient that can legally obtain medical marijuana.

Connecticut requires designated caregivers to have an email address, telephone number, and a Connecticut driver’s license or identification card. The caregiver application fee for a medical cannabis card is 25 USD.

They must be at least eighteen years old, agree to assist one qualifying medical marijuana patient at a time, can’t have a felony conviction, and cannot be the patient’s certified physician.
