New Hampshire: Governor Signs Legislation Lifting Medical Cannabis Dispensary Cap

Concord, NH: Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has signed legislation into law expanding the total number of medical cannabis dispensaries which may operate legally within the state.

Senate Bill 388 acknowledges the need for the establishment of additional dispensaries in specific geographic areas, including Carroll, Cheshire, and Grafton counties. Under the state’s initial medical cannabis law, no more than four dispensaries were permitted within the state.

An estimated 3,500 patients are registered with the state to access cannabis, according to 2017 data.

The new law takes effect on July 29, 2018.
