New Hampshire Passes Bill to Legalize MMJ

May 5th, 2009 by Erin

New Hampshire <3 MMJ!

New Hampshire is the newest state to pass a bill to legalize small amounts of medical marijuana for qualified patients suffering from severe illnesses.

Similar to states with a medical marijuana law already in place, the bill if passed, will allow patients to grow up to six plants and possess up to two ounces of cannabis with a legitimate doctor’s recommendation.

The Senate’s vote of 14-10 has sent this bill for House approval. A review of the bill is also underway to add an amendment, following the typical arguments; Marijuana advocates insisting that it shows compassion to the sick, and opponents coming back with the archaic argument that the bill would encourage abuse and be difficult to regulate.

Edit: The confusion regarding this article has been resolved, we’ll put our crystal ball away. Thanks to Jordan for the heads up!

    Erin, be careful – NH has NOT legalized MMJ. The NH Senate has passed the bill. It is now in the House.

    “New Hampshire’s Senate has voted to legalize allowing residents with crippling ailments to use small amounts of marijuana.

    The 14-10 vote on Wednesday sent the bill back to the House for review of an amendment.”
