A bipartisan group of five legislators has introduced legislation to legalize marijuana possession in New Hampshire.
The measure has majority support in the state, but just barely. A Public Policy Polling survey earlier this month found 53% supported changing state law to regulate marijuana alike alcohol, with 37% opposed.
The Granite State is only one of at least six states where legislators have filed or will file marijuana legalization bills this year. The others are Hawaii, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
