Reps. Borer and Ferraro Tour Advanced Grow Labs

May 11, 2017

My colleague, Rep. Charles Ferraro and I, recently toured Advanced Grow Labs in West Haven to get a better understanding of the medical marijuana industry in Connecticut.

Advanced Grow Labs is one of four medical marijuana producers in the state; the other facilities are located in Simsbury, Portland, and Watertown. The company started with five employees and now has over forty, and is preparing to expand at their current location. The facility provides medical marijuana and products, no candy, to nine dispensaries located in Hartford, Branford, Waterbury, Bethel, South Windsor, Uncasville, Bristol, and two in Milford.

As CT continues to be a leader in the advancement of the medical programs, I appreciate the value that this West Haven based company brings with respect to the evolving research and delivery of marijuana for medical purposes.

A patient may only obtain a medical marijuana card if they have a debilitating medical condition and is approved by a Connecticut-licensed physician. Last year, the General Assembly expanded the state’s medical marijuana program to minors with certain medical conditions.
