The Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) is responsible for licensing and regulating medical and adult-use cannabis establishments in Connecticut. Each year, the Department of Consumer Protection issues over 200,000 licenses, registrations, and permits for more than 200 types of jobs and businesses, including the legal cannabis community.
Each municipality has the authority to establish restrictions on the proximity of cannabis establishments to any of the following: churches, public or parochial schools, convents, charitable institutions supported by private or public funds, hospitals or veterans’ homes or any camps, barracks or flying fields of the armed forces. Please check with local municipalities to ensure you’re compliant with local regulations and laws.
Retailer Equity Joint Ventures and Hybrid Retailer Equity Joint Ventures cannot be located within 20 miles of any other EJV that it shares a Producer Backer or Dispensary Facility Backer with, regardless of the EJV’s license type.
