Proposed changes to medical marijuana law in Granite State would restrict its use
However, the changes proposed in House Bill 1616 did not please advocates for the program who said those with the most need for the drug may not be able to secure enough of it to benefit.
The bill would restrict qualifying patients to two ounces of marijuana every 30 days instead of every 10 days as lawmaker approved last year.
He said two ounces a month would limit a patient's options to smoking it and not eating it or refining it to make concentrated oil as many cancer patients do.
Several committee members suggested an exception if a physician determines the patient is not receiving sufficient benefit from the allowable dose.
The bill also addresses concerns of law enforcement, which opposes the program, but State Police Maj. Russell Conte said the changes begin to close some of the loopholes in the law.
