NH medical marijuana OK’d by legislature
Gov. Maggie Hassan has said she will sign the bill. When she does, New Hampshire will become the final New England state to establish a medical marijuana program and the 19th state along with Washington, D.C., with similar programs.
Sen. Peggy Gilmour, D-Hollis, praised the compromise and said it will provide “one more tool in the toolbox for people who are, unfortunately, suffering.”
“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. “People suffering from cancer and HIV/AIDS in New York and other states are just as deserving of sensible and compassionate laws as those here in New Hampshire.”
