The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) announced six retailers and two micro-cultivators selected in the general lottery who can move forward in the licensure process.

The retailers selected are Debbie’s Dispensary, Shangri-La CT Inc., SHANGRI-LA CT INC., Hydra East, SLAP ASH, and Sara’s Dispensary LLC. Debbie’s Dispensary was also one of the two selected micro-cultivators along with Chillax LLC.

The general lottery included all general lottery applicants and all applicants who were not selected in the first round of the Social Equity Lottery, which took place in August. The Social Equity Council approved six retailers, two micro-cultivators, and three Equity Joint Venture applicants in the first round, Cannabis Business Times reported.

The next steps for general lottery applicants include submitting “information for the required background check and provisional license application, which will be reviewed by DCP,” according to a press release.

Approved applicants will then be required to pay licensure fees based on their application type. Licensure fees for non-social equity applicants and social equity applicants can be found here.
