Advocates of Connecticut's new medical marijuana law are considering whether to start a business alliance for entrepreneurs and others interested in getting involved in the initiative.
An organizational meeting of the proposed Connecticut Medical Cannabis Business Alliance is scheduled Tuesday morning at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.
Erik Williams, executive director of Connecticut NORML, which pushed for legalizing medical marijuana in the state, is leading the meeting. Williams wants to gauge whether there's interest in starting a business alliance that would be modeled after a similar group in Colorado.
The state Department of Consumer Protection has until July 1 to submit proposed regulations to the General Assembly about how the drug will be dispensed and other details. The program is expected to be up and running by late 2013.
