Connecticut has decriminalized marijuana. Decriminalization usually means no prison time or criminal record for first-time possession of a small amount for personal use. This conduct is treated like a minor traffic violation. Possession one-half ounce or less results in a civil penalty of $150 to $500 (first and second offenses). Possession of more than one-half ounce is a misdemeanor with a fine of up to $2,000 and up to one year of jail time.
