WEST HAVEN, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Connecticut officials have selected the first producers of medical marijuana in the state.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and other officials announced the selection Tuesday of four producers who will operate facilities in West Haven, Portland, Simsbury and Watertown.
As WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reported, patient demand for medical marijuana has grown, prompting the state Department of Consumer Protection to issue four licenses where initially they were set to issue just three.
In all, 27 growers applied to operate facilities.
