Connecticut Criminal Laws

Connecticut has extensive criminal statutes covering everything from complex criminal enterprises like conspiracy, credit card fraud, and computer crime to more violent violations like murder, kidnapping, and robbery. While it seems like drug laws in other states have been in flux lately, the Nutmeg State is no different. Marijuana has yet to be legalized, but some possession has been decriminalized and medical marijuana is legal in some situations. You can learn the distinctions below, along with state statutes on cocaine and heroin possession, manufacture, and trafficking. Connecticut also has laws that protect its consumers in financial transaction by prosecuting pyramid schemes, identity theft, and securities and wire fraud.
