HARTFORD -

For the first time ever, recreational marijuana will be considered by the full Connecticut General Assembly.

It's the first time a recreational pot bill has ever made it out of a legislative committee.

The bill directs the state to create a plan to allow recreational sales and a plan to regulate those sales.
