new hampshire legalizes medical marijuana

Someone was clearly listening to Melissa Etheridge!

New Hampshire finally agreed on a bill that would legalize medical marijuana, making them the last state in New England to do so.

Governor Maggie Hassan made a statement, saying:

"Allowing doctors to provide relief to patients through the use of appropriately regulated and dispensed medical marijuana is the compassionate and right policy for the State of New Hampshire. [The compromise] addresses the concerns that I have heard and expressed throughout this session, and provides the level of regulation needed for the use of medical marijuana.”

Get those people the help they need!

The new law will allow four marijuana dispensaries to open, starting in 2015 for patients who have state-issued identity cards.

Where they compromised are provisions stating that people can grow their own marijuana, it can’t be used for PTSD and only five patients at a time can be treated.

It’s pretty restrictive, but it’s showing progress!
