Connecticut’s DCP Drug Control Division Increases Monthly Allotment For Medical Marijuana Patients

Cannabis was approved for adult-use in June 2021.

 The Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) Drug Control Division’s Medical Marijuana Program has increased monthly allotments for medical marijuana patients from 3.0 ounces to 3.5 ounces.

The increase, based on the department’s evaluation of the current medical marijuana market, is an effort to provide patients with greater access to medication for their debilitating conditions. Patients are limited to purchasing up to 2.5 ounces per transaction but may now purchase a total of 3.5 ounces each month.

No action is required by certifying practitioners for qualifying patients to access the increased allotment. Qualifying patients will automatically have their allotment increased to 3.5 ounces. Patients who have an allotment that has been restricted or expanded by a certifying practitioner will remain unchanged.

DCP will continue to evaluate the medical marijuana market to determine if additional increases to patient allotments are necessary and will not lead to supply shortages.
