Wednesday, January 3rd 2018 – The Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) announced today that it has issued a Request for Application (RFA) for new Medical Marijuana Dispensary Facilities. DCP plans to award at least three (3) new licenses.
“Our state’s Medical Marijuana Program is incredibly successful, and is growing rapidly,” said Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull, “When there is a substantial increase in the number of patients, DCP can issue new RFAs in order to best meet the demand for medication, and continue our commitment to quality health care.”
Applicants will be required to submit detailed information about their business plan, site plan, financial information, organizational structure, security plans, compassionate care program plans and more. RFA responses are due on April 9th, 2018, and dispensary facility licenses will be awarded based on the RFA responses.
There are nine (9) dispensary facilities and four (4) producers providing medication for the state’s patients. There are currently 22,348 medical marijuana patients, and 807 certifying physicians and advanced practice registered nurses in the state of Connecticut.
A copy of the RFA can be found here.
All questions about the application or application process should be directed to [email protected]  with the subject line “Medical Marijuana RFA Question.”
