New Hampshire House Advances Recreational Marijuana Bill

Marijuana NH

New Hampshire lawmakers are working to approve legislation regarding recreational marijuana that is similar to the model used in Vermont. The House voted to move legislation forward that would allow adults ages 21 and older to possess up to ¾ of an ounce of marijuana. Growing up to 6 plants would also be permitted.

Governor Sununu has remained opposed to legalizing recreational marijuana, New Hampshire Public Radio reminds readers. He’s also opposed to allowing medical marijuana patients to grow their own medicine at home. The New Hampshire Senate did pass legislation that would allow home cultivation or medical marijuana patients.

The veto-proof legalization bill is now in the Senate’s hands.
