The measure legalizes the possession of up to 3/4 of an ounce of marijuana by those age 21 or older. It also allows for adults to home cultivate up to three mature marijuana pants and/or to possess up to five grams of hashish, and up to 300mg of cannabis-infused products.
Under the proposed measure, patients registered with the state’s medical cannabis access program would be permitted to grow up to three mature cannabis plants at home. Currently, qualified patients are only permitted to obtain medical cannabis from a limited number of state-licensed dispensaries.
Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has signed legislation into law establishing procedures permitting those with prior, low-level marijuana convictions to petition the court to have their convictions annulled. The new law takes effect on January 1, 2020.
