Home delivery to Connecticut cannabis consumers is one step closer to reality as the lottery for delivery licenses closed last week. “Delivery service is one of the license types now available in Connecticut as part of the new adult-use program,” Kaitlyn Krasselt, communications director at the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection, told The Center Square. “Home delivery will also be available to patients in the medical marijuana program.” Medical dispensary facilities are allowed to deliver if the entity submits an application to the department and satisfies an inspection. A bill passed last year allows those who receive these licenses to deliver their product to homes on the first day that the Department of Consumer Protection allows recreational sales. The infrastructure for home delivery is already in place. “Connecticut already has 22 medical cannabis dispensaries, all of which will likely convert to adult use and start delivery operations when the adult-use market opens,” DeVaughn Ward, senior legislative council at Marijuana Policy Project, told The Center Square. “Additionally, consumers already receive controlled products like alcohol and pharmaceuticals through delivery in Connecticut.”
