Medical Marijuana in Hartford, Connecticut

You can get a medical marijuana card and physician's certificate online with Leafwell regardless of where you are in Connecticut. This includes Hartford. There is one main dispensary in Hartford, CT, which is Arrow Alternative Care.

 

Arrow Alternative Care - Hartford

It is a medical cannabis dispensary, so you will need a valid medical marijuana card in order to shop at this dispensary.

 

As far as specific laws go, they are the same as in many other jurisdictions.

 

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.

 

The alcohol industry also seem to be very interested in recreational cannabis in particular, even going as far as providing a regulatory framework! Of course, the alcohol industry sees cannabis as both an opportunity and threat, so this is something to keep in mind! Other interesting developments include an indication that recreational cannabis may be legalized, whilst flavored vapes may be made illegal!

 

We know cannabis fans, medical or otherwise, tend to enjoy many active, outdoor and artistic endeavours, as well as eating good food. Hence, we give some ideas as to what to do in these great cities, especially for those who are moving to new areas and the like!

The Connecticut Science Center is a family favorite. Bushnell Park and the Connecticut State Capitol is worth a visit. Elizabeth Park is certainly a very pretty place to visit. Great River Park is great for activities of all sorts, as well as woodland and concerts.
