New Hampshire Marijuana Legalization Bill Filed

A bipartisan group of five legislators has introduced legislation to legalize marijuana possession in New Hampshire.

The bill, House Bill 492, would legalize the possession of up to an ounce by adults 21 and over and allow the cultivation of a limited number of plants by adults. It would also allow for licensed and regulated marijuana commerce.

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.

SB 2369 Mississippi

Come on lets here about Mississippi's MMJ bill SB2369 Thanks, Senator Dawkins!

Legalize

And grow it in place of the crops that are no longer wanted or needed as Industrial Hemp will be grown and taxed and used in so many ways, not hurting the environment as a side effect is in its self a gain.

What's in a name.

Well if it's going to be legalized anywhere it should be in New Hampshire. 

You know what Hampshire means don't you?

Hamp means Hemp. So it's the shire where the hemp grows.

I think that naming a place after its primary agricultural industry is a strong indication of its economic significance, don't you?

Legalization of marijuana

Legalization of marijuana will certainly help to reduce the ill effects of using it illegally. The government can monitor the production and distribution once it had been made legal. Do keep us updated about the developments in the legalization bill. Microsoft chat

Legalizing pot in NYS would cause massive unemployment and result in a civil war. The prison industry and law enforcement agencies would never let it happen. jhony
