Can I grow cannabis at home?
Medical marijuana patients 18 years and older will be able to grow up to 3 mature and 3 immature plants at home starting October 1, 2021, with a cap of 12 total plants per household. All adults over age 21 will be able to grow under the same rules starting July 1, 2023. Plants must be grown indoors and must not be visible from the street. People who choose to grow their own plants must do so in their primary residence and where individuals under 21 can not access the plants.
As of July 1, 2021, recreational use of cannabis by adults over age 21 became legal in Connecticut. The 2021 law legalizes possession up to 1.5 ounces of cannabis and cultivation of marijuana by adults. It also expunges low-level criminal records related to marijuana.
