In 2012, Connecticut passed HB 5389, which legalized medical marijuana in the state. In 2015, it passed HB 5780, which legalized industrial hemp. However, unauthorized possession of recreational marijuana is still illegal in Connecticut—either by fines for possession of less than 0.5 oz, or a Class A Misdemeanor for 0.5 oz or more.
