New Hampshire Governor Signs Cannabis Annulment Bill

Cannabis Legalization

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu signed House Bill 399 into law. It will allow some people previously convicted of low-level marijuana crimes to request an annulment. Only those with convictions for possession of ¾ oz. of marijuana or less with no additional crimes attached will be eligible.

The prosecuting attorney has just 10 days to signal acceptance of objection to the request, according to NORML. If no objections are placed, the annulment petitions will be granted.

House Bill 399 takes effect on January 1, 2020.

Marijuana has been decriminalized in New Hampshire since 2017.
