(CT) - Towns consider their own medical marijuana laws

It hasn't been easy for those who want to get into the business of growing or selling marijuana in Connecticut.

More than a dozen municipalities throughout the state are hanging out "not welcome" signs, using the only tools at their disposal -- land use and zoning laws -- to keep the industry from setting up shop within their borders.

Still other communities are drafting local ordinances to regulate how the businesses will be run. And at least one town has considered applications from a couple of would-be purveyors, only to quickly turn them down.

With less than two weeks before the deadline for prospective medical marijuana growers and sellers to file their applications with state officials, only a handful of facilities have won the necessary local zoning approvals.
