In New Hampshire, marijuana legalization is within reach. This comes after New Hampshire’s House of Representatives voted to legalize possession and cultivation last month. Naturally, legislators, business people, and Mary J enthusiasts have a lot of questions about the realities of weed legalization. That’s why New Hampshire is holding a marijuana legalization hearing today. Here’s what we know so far.
This public hearing is only about legalization.
Only the legalization of recreational marijuana is on the docket today. The bill the House passed would legalize adult possession of three-quarters of an ounce of marijuana and a maximum of six marijuana plants.
Currently, marijuana possession is classified as a misdemeanor, with fines that range from $100 to $300 dollars.
So far, there are no plans for commercial marijuana sales.
New Hampshire’s marijuana law passed on January 9th, 2018 looks a lot like Vermont’s marijuana legislation.
On January 22, Vermont Governor Phil Scott signed the possession of one ounce of cannabis and of three plants into law. To date, there are no legislative efforts to legalize commercial growth and marijuana retail in either state.
New Hampshire waits to hear the findings of a commission investigating the consequences of legalization.
Though marijuana isn’t legal in New Hampshire yet, citizens and lawmakers alike are considering the intricacies of weed law. How will marijuana be taxed? When will it be legal to sell weed?
This commission is looking into where cannabis could be grown in-state, and how the state should legislate and tax it.
Why is New Hampshire holding this hearing if the House already passed the bill legalizing weed?
Unlike all other states where marijuana is legal except Vermont, New Hampshire legalized weed in its House of Representatives, not by voter majority.
New Hampshire is holding a marijuana legalization hearing today to give the community an opportunity to comment on this landmark law.
Final Hit: New Hampshire Is Holding a Marijuana Legalization Hearing Today
So when can we expect more developments in New Hampshire legalization? No matter what the Trump administration says, it’s only a matter of time before growing marijuana commercially and selling it retail become legal. And with the state slogan ‘live free or die,’ Mary J lovers in New Hampshire will blaze—and grow—sooner rather than later.
