One could make the argument that the TOS Connie could use cannons as well....there was very little consistency in the VFX and on at least one occasion (the one with Mark Lenard as a romulan if I recall) the "phasers" fired single pulses that, oddly, made a photon torpedo sound.

It could also be that the bigot yellow shirt in that episode had no idea what he was doing and kept pressing the wrong button.
