Hello. My name is ____________ and I live in ___________, Connecticut. I’m part of the 71% of Connecticut residents who support legalizing and regulating marijuana for adults. As neighboring states move forward on this issue, our state should stop wasting resources on the failed policy of prohibition. Please call a vote on HB 5394, which would instruct agencies to develop a plan to regulate marijuana.
Suggested talking points:
• Marijuana is safer than alcohol. Adults should not be punished for making the safer option.
• Legalization replaces the criminal market with a safer, legal option.
• While other state economies benefit from legalization, Connecticut should stop wasting resources on punishing individuals for activities that are legal next door.
• Legalization can end enforcement policies that have disproportionately targeted minority communities.
• Prohibition has failed. It’s time to regulate marijuana sales for adults.
