New Hampshire Set to Establish Commission for Cannabis Legalisation

A new bill – HB 611- has been signed in New Hampshire that will establish a commission that will prepare for the legalisation of cannabis.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu signed the bill that will establish both eligibility criteria for the therapeutic cannabis program and establish a commission to study state-controlled sales of cannabis.

Governor Sununu stated: “New Hampshire has an opportunity to safely regulate the sale of marijuana with a model few others can provide.

“By establishing a commission to study state-controlled sales, this bill will bring stakeholders from across New Hampshire together to ensure that preventing negative impacts upon kids remains our number one priority.”

As well as establishing the commission, the bill removes the requirement that severe pain be resistant to other treatment options in order to be considered a qualifying medical condition for therapeutic cannabis – a change that will enable medical providers to certify patients “for severe pain without the prerequisite of undergoing surgery or having not responded to previously prescribed medications.”

The bill also prohibits the sale of hemp products containing certain amounts of THC.
