HARTFORD — On the 50th anniversary of the war on drugs, the state Senate put the finishing touches Thursday on legislation to legalize marijuana in Connecticut.
On July 1, it will be legal for adults over 21 to have an ounce-and-a-half of marijuana, plus another five ounces in a locked container. Retail sales in Connecticut may begin as soon as next spring, under legislation the state Senate approved in a 16-11 vote after a 70-minute debate on Thursday morning.
