Connecticut lawmakers held a public hearing Monday to hammer out new rules for the sale of medical marijuana.

Hundreds of people packed the courthouse and dozens signed up to speak at the hearing.

The law allowing the use of medical marijuana passed in the legislature last May.

Many of the regulations will be geared toward how physicians prescribe patients.

So far 450 people in Connecticut are certified by their doctors to be treated with medical marijuana.
