HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Legislative attorneys are now recommending that state lawmakers approve a revised set of proposed regulations for Connecticut's new medical marijuana program.
In a report provided to The Associated Press, the Legislative Commissioners Office recommended that the General Assembly's Regulation Review Committee approve the regulations in whole, along with 118 technical corrections, various deletions and substitute pages. The bipartisan panel is scheduled to meet on Tuesday.
The attorneys had previously recommended the committee reject the proposed regulations, citing more than dozen concerns, such as the broadness of the language. But the Department of Consumer Protection submitted revisions, expressing confidence that all the major concerns had been addressed.
Rep. Selim Noujaim, the committee's co-chairman, said Friday he's still worried about approving regulations for an industry that violates federal drug laws.
