Update on Recreational Marijuana Sales in Danbury Include No Dispensaries on Main St.
On July 1, 2021, recreational marijuana became legal in Connecticut, and you can bet that pot smokers throughout the state fired up one, two, or maybe even three celebratory joints.
Danbury lawmakers immediately set up a marijuana legalization timeline for selling recreational cannabis. According to CT Post, the city would permit four types of marijuana businesses but not on Main Street in Danbury, although these directives will be debated this summer.
That decision was made so they wouldn't infringe on schools, parks, and places of worship. In addition, Danbury put a one-year ban on all applications for new recreational marijuana businesses, which should roll out later this year.
Regulations have already been set to allow for no more than two hybrid retailers that can sell recreational and medical marijuana to adults. Therefore, another option is no more than three businesses in these categories: one medical marijuana dispensary, one recreational cannabis retailer, and one hybrid retailer. Regulations are already in place saying:
Cannabis establishments shall not be permitted on lots which, in whole or in part, border on Main Street / Route 53 in Danbury.
Currently, the closest recreational marijuana dispensaries closest to Danbury are approximately 52 miles away in Great Barrington, Massachusetts and they are Calyx Berkshire Dispensary, Rebelle, The Pass, and Great Barrington Dispensary.
