Regulations approved to allow certain cannabis-related businesses in Danbury

Regulations to allow certain cannabis-related businesses in Danbury have been approved by the Zoning Commission.  At their meeting Tuesday, members voted 6 to 3 for the plan allowing four types of marijuana businesses and banning seven others defined in state statute.  Two public hearings were held on the proposals. 

The 4 types of licenses allowed by state statute that would be allowed to locate to Danbury are the revenue generating ones, which would result in a 3 percent tax for the City.  The revenue can only be used for certain things such as streetscaping, youth employment, mental health and addiction services and services for people released by the Department of Corrections.

The regulations allow for two hybrid retailers that sell both medicinal marijuana and recreational cannabis to adults, or one medicinal marijuana dispensary, one recreational retailer, one hybrid retailer and one micro-cultivator.  The City defines micro-cultivator as an indoor plant producer whose grow space is between 2,000- and 10,000-square-feet. 

Danbury does have the opportunity in the future to make amendments and allow for more businesses.
