The first vendors to come online will be hybrid retailers – those that already serve the state’s medical marijuana patients – and the closest of those to West Hartford will be Fine Fettle, at 2280 Berlin Turnpike in Newington.

Licensed Connecticut cannabis retailers will be permitted to begin selling a limited amount of their product – up to a quarter ounce per transaction – to adults at least 21 years old on Jan. 10, the state Consumer Protection Department announced Friday.

The date represents the long-awaited start of Connecticut’s commercial cannabis market, authorized by a 2021 law that legalized the recreational use of the substance. Sales can begin at 10 a.m. on the second Tuesday of January, the agency announced in a press release.

The Town of West Hartford has give site plan approval to a retailer for a storefront at 1037 Boulevard, and the applicant, Budr Hartford Holding LLC, has received a provisional license, but the space must be built out and there is no word on when it will be ready to open.
