New Hampshire Bill Would Legalize Medical Use of Marijuana

Possessing 2 ounces or less of marijuana would not be a crime if the drug is intended for medicinal purposes under a New Hampshire bill being considered by the House.

The Legislature passed a medical marijuana bill two years ago but Gov. John Lynch vetoed it. The House voted to pass the bill over Lynch’s veto but it fell two votes short in the Senate.

Last year, the House voted to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana, but Lynch said he would veto it and the Senate killed the bill.

The House Health, Human Services and Elderly Affairs Committee holds a hearing on the medical marijuana bill Tuesday.

    Hey New Hampshire: If your state motto is “live free or die” as evidenced by your automobile license plates; why is the use of marijuana still illegal in your state?

    Sounds like its time for the people of New Hampshire to stop voting for this lynch person. Democracy in action.
