The Town of Durham will hold a public hearing to establish a marijuana ordinance. The meeting is set for Monday, Oct. 25 on the third floor of Town Hall.

Due to space limitations, the public is encouraged to attend the hearing remotely, via Zoom. 

At the hearing officials will present information and provide an opportunity for public comment on the proposed ordinance banning cannabis establishments in town.

In June, state lawmakers voted in favor of wide-ranging cannabis legalization. The law lays the groundwork for a new, legal cannabis industry in the state, which likely will take several more months to emerge. 

As of July 1, adults 21 and older can legally possess small quantities of marijuana in Connecticut.

Ordinances regarding the use of tobacco and cannabis products on town-owned properties and open space also will be discussed at the Oct. 25 public hearing.

To view the proposed ordinances, go to or call 860-349-3625 to request a copy.
