The House of Representatives voted Wednesday for legislation that would create a legal market for recreational marijuana in Connecticut.
Legislative leaders declined to expand the special session beyond marijuana legalization and a budget implementation bill.

Whether Connecticut legalizes marijuana depends on two legislators solving a puzzle of politics and numbers.
Lawmakers said legalizing pot is a necessary step in efforts to upend decades of inequality in arrests and convictions against minority communities.
