Medical Cannabis Legalized in New Hampshire

Jun 26, 2013

With just one day left to pass it this ses­sion, the New Hamp­shire Leg­is­la­ture has given final approval to a mea­sure aimed at legal­iz­ing med­ical mar­i­juana – includ­ing state licensed dis­pen­saries. After much back anmedical-marijuana-symbold forth between the House and Sen­ate, HB 573 has finally made it through – Gov­er­nor Mag­gie Has­san will sign the leg­is­la­tion at any time, stat­ing prior to its pas­sage that: “I encour­age the full leg­is­la­ture to pass this com­pro­mise so I can sign this leg­is­la­tion into law”. “This leg­is­la­tion has been a long time com­ing and is a much-needed vic­tory for those with seri­ous ill­nesses who find sig­nif­i­cant relief in med­ical mar­i­juana,” said Matt Simon, a leg­isla­tive ana­lyst for the Mar­i­juana Pol­icy Project. Once signed, the law will go into effect imme­di­ately, and a com­mis­sion will begin the process of estab­lish­ing a dis­pen­sary sys­tem. Patients will be allowed to pos­sess up to 2 ounces, and dis­pen­saries will be allowed up to 80 ounces and 80 plants (with 160 seedlings), plus an addi­tional three plants, 12 seedlings and 6 ounces for every patient who des­ig­nates the dis­pen­sary as their pri­mary access point. The mea­sure man­dates that at least two licenses must be issued for dis­pen­saries within the first 18 months of the law’s passage.
