Pullman & Comley Attorneys Quoted in Fairfield County Business Journal on New Adult-Use Cannabis Policy in CT

Fairfield County Business Journal

Pullman & Comley attorneys Megan Youngling Carannante, Andrew C. Glassman, Nancy A. D. Hancock, Gary B. O'Connor and Steven J. Stafstrom Jr. weigh in on Connecticut's new adult-use cannabis policy in a detailed Fairfield County Business Journal article based on a recent webinar from our Cannabis practice.

As part of our firm-wide "Cannabis in Connecticut" seminar earlier this month, our attorneys discussed various legal and regulatory issues surrounding the awaited start of Connecticut's retail cannabis business, and what these could mean for entrepreneurs, employers and municipalities. Among the greatest concerns remains the lack of clear direction from state agencies such as the Social Equity Council and Department of Consumer Protection, as well as from federal regulatory authorities like the SEC. What is certain, according to our attorneys, is that potential players and interested parties should expect to navigate a complicated process as guidance surrounding applicant qualifications, licensing, zoning, and employer rights and responsibilities continues to develop.
