NH bill would legalize medical use of marijuana

A panel of New Hampshire lawmakers is considering a bill to legalize using small amounts of marijuana for medicinal purposes.

The House Health, Human Services and Elderly Affairs Committee holds a hearing on the bill Tuesday

Under the bill, possessing 2 ounces or less of marijuana would not be a crime if the drug is intended for medical purposes.

The Legislature passed a medical marijuana bill two years ago, but Gov. John Lynch vetoed it. The House voted to pass the bill over Lynch’s veto but it fell two votes short in the Senate.

Last year, the House voted to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana, but Lynch said he would veto it and the Senate killed the bill.
