NH Senate Passes Medical Marijuana Bill, But…There’s a Catch
Thursday of this week, the New Hampshire Senate has passed a bill to allow medical marijuana patients to grow their own supply, but, there is a catch. Participants would not be able to share the results with other patients.
A report from the Assoicated Press says the NH Senate passed a bill earlier this week that would allow patients or caregivers to grow their own marijuana, and possess up to three mature plants, three immature plants and 12 seedlings. The bill must now be reconciled with the House-passed version, which would have allowed growers to give plants to other patients.
Lawmakers also are considering legalizing recreational use of marijuana.
The Granite State legalized medical marijuana back in 2013. More than 7,000 patients are enrolled in the program. For now, they must travel to one of the state's four dispensaries to get the drug, and many have said distance and cost are major obstacles.
