HARTFORD — Proponents of legalizing medical marijuana in Connecticut say this year’s version of the legislation addresses many of the concerns that have been voiced over the years. Erik Williams, executive director of the state chapter of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws, said the bill up for a public hearing on Wednesday before the legislature’s Judiciary Committee is the best medical marijuana bill in the country right now. He said it is very specific, setting up a system for licensing medical marijuana producers in Connecticut, dispensing the drug and registering qualified patients with debilitating medical conditions. Williams will join patients and other advocates to voice support for the bill at a news conference before Wednesday’s hearing. Opponents have argued the legislation sends the wrong message to young people.
