The movement to legalize recreational weed in Connecticut has been picking up steam. In 2011, Governor Dannel Mallow decriminalized weed. Then in 2012, the state legalized medical marijuana.

Since then, there’s been a push to extend legalization to recreational weed. Despite a failed attempt to make it happen last year, a majority of Connecticut residents support legalization. If that majority has its way, 2018 could be their year.
