HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Attorneys who advise Connecticut's General Assembly are recommending that a legislative committee reject regulations needed to implement Connecticut's new medical marijuana program.
In a report obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, the Legislative Commissioner's Office urged members of the Regulations Review Committee to reject the proposed regulations without prejudice, essentially sending them back to the Department of Consumer Protection for revisions.
The attorneys listed more than a dozen major concerns about the proposed language, saying it is too broad in some cases.
It marks one of the first major obstacles for the state's medical marijuana program.
The bipartisan committee is scheduled to meet Aug. 27. Committee co-chairman Rep. Salim Noujaim said the panel typically abides by recommendations for rejection but that would not mean the marijuana program is dead.
