The bill legalizing medicinal marijuana in New Hampshire is on the way.
It all got moving with the election of a new governor. New Hampshire’s previous governor John Lynch opposed the legalization of medical marijuana, but the newly elected Maggie Hasan officially stated, that she supports the legalization and the results are already here.
Just last week the New Hampshire House Health, Human Services & Elderly Affairs Committee approved the House Bill 573 (or the medical marijuana bill) with a smashing vote of 14 against 1. This bill will allow up to five state-licensed dispensaries and home cultivation. The patients will be allowed to cultivate up to four adult plants and twelve seedlings, but to become qualified for that that they’ll have to be a patient of a particular doctor for at least 90 days and satisfy the following health conditions: cancer, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, glaucoma, wasting syndrome, severe pain and such thing as sizable weight loss. Many people already said that the bill is too restrictive, but it is definitely a start for New Hampshire legalization and for all medic cannabis patients.
