New Hampshire House Approves Marijuana Legalization Bill, Sending It To The Senate

The New Hampshire House again voted in favor of a bill to legalize marijuana on Thursday, sending the legislation to the Senate.

If the proposal is enacted into law, adults 21 and older would be able to possess, consume, cultivate, gift and purchase cannabis from licensed retailers under the bill. A governor-appointed commission would be responsible for developing regulatory policies and issuing the licenses.

Another provision included in the legislation would give individuals with prior convictions for marijuana possession or cultivation the ability to get their records cleared.

The House voted 200-163 to pass the bill. That does not represent a veto-proof majority, which could come into play if the legislation gets to the anti-legalization governor’s desk.
