Fairfield, CT considers moratorium on cannabis establishments

FAIRFIELD – You might not be able to buy weed in Fairfield – at least not legally and at least not for another year – as the Town Plan and Zoning Commission gets ready to vote on a one-year moratorium on cannabis establishments in town.
The commission had a public hearing Tuesday night on the regulation amendment, which would prohibit cannabis establishments in town until Feb. 28 of 2023. The vote on the amendment will likely be at the commission’s Feb. 8 meeting, officials said.
Some members of the public were not thrilled at the idea of such establishments in town and supported the moratorium.
Tom Hennessey, a member of Fairfield CARES, said the organization is “pretty much against this whole cannabis thing.”
“We have three, four months to get ahead of this,” he said.
Planning Director Jim Wendt said the regulation amendment would prohibit all cannabis establishments for a period of one year unless extended. Retail sales of cannabis products starts being allowed in May of this y..

Marijuana legalization bill clears House panel in Delaware

DOVER, Del. (AP) – A Democrat-led House committee voted mostly along party lines Wednesday to release a bill legalizing recreational marijuana use by adults in Delaware.
A lone Republican joined Democrats on the Health and Human Development committee in voting to release the bill, which will now likely head to an appropriations committee for consideration.
The bill creates a state-controlled and licensed pot industry that supporters say will eliminate the black market while creating jobs and boosting the state’s tax coffers. The measure is the third iteration of legislation that was first introduced in 2019 but which has never received a floor vote.
The bill legalizes possession of up to one ounce of marijuana by adults 21 and older, but it prohibits people from growing their own pot. The state would instead oversee a manufacturing and distribution industry and levy a 15% tax on retail sales.
