New Hampshire Qualifying Conditions For Cannabis Therapy

Concord, NH: Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has signed legislation, House Bill 160, to expand the pool of patients eligible to engage in cannabis therapy.

The new law, which takes effect August 27, 2017, permits physicians to recommend medical marijuana to patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and/or moderate to severe post-traumatic stress.

The Governor had previously signed legislation enabling patients with moderate to severe chronic pain to legally obtain cannabis.

Over 2,000 patients are registered in the state's medical cannabis program.
