Yesterday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted to pass a bill allowing terminally and seriously ill patients to use marijuana for medicinal reasons.
The bill, HB 442, is similar to a bill that had been vetoed two years ago by Governor John Lynch. The language, which can be found in its entirety here, includes a provision for licensed treatment centers which would be permitted to distribute marijuana to authorized patients.
The bill says that approved caregivers or patients may obtain one ounce of marijuana every ten days, and may possess up to two ounces at any time.
It passed the House in a 221-96 vote, and now gets moved to the Senate for debate and a vote there.
