S. Windsor dispensary to sell medical marijuana

SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (AP) — A medical marijuana dispensary facility has opened in South Windsor, joining five others already doing business in Connecticut.

Prime Wellness of Connecticut will sell Connecticut-produced marijuana products to seriously ill patients who have registered with the state’s Medical Marijuana Program.

The other facilities are in Branford, Bridgeport, Bristol, Hartford and Uncasville. All were authorized by the state’s medical marijuana program to dispense Connecticut-produced marijuana products.

Recipients must be seriously ill patients who have registered with the state and been certified by their doctors as potentially benefiting from the use of medical marijuana.

Backers of the Connecticut law, which was approved in 2012, say it will help people who have cancer, Parkinson’s disease, AIDS, post-traumatic stress disorder and other debilitating conditions.
