HARTFORD, Conn(AP) — Some state lawmakers want to know how recreational marijuana might be regulated if Connecticut decides to someday legalize the drug. The General Assembly’s General Law Committee voted Thursday to raise the concept, the first step toward possible legislation. Democratic RepMichael D’Agostino of Hamden says it’s unclear whether the General Assembly might legalize the recreational use of marijuana but agreed it makes sense for legislators to learn more about what a regulatory system would entail.
