CT News Junkie reports “There are still unknowns, but the Democratic co-chairs of three committees said Thursday that they’ve come up with a framework for recreational cannabis in Connecticut.

The separate pieces of legislation, which are so new they don’t have bill numbers, would create a five-member Cannabis Control Commission to oversee the regulation of the industry. Another set of bills would allow for the expungement of past convictions for possession of an ounce or more of the drug, and an unwritten piece of legislation would seek to set a 20-percent tax rate.
