New Hampshire: Legislature Approves Physician-Supervised Use Of Medical Marijuana

Concord: Members of the state Senate approved legislation on Wednesday that seeks to make New Hampshire the fourteenth state to allow for the physician-supervised use of medicinal cannabis.

As passed, the bill would allow qualified patients to possess up to two ounces of cannabis and/or six plants for medical purposes.

Because the Senate made minor amendments to the proposal, it must be re-approved by the House before going to Gov. John Lynch – who has expressed reservations about the measure.
