A bill to legalize the recreational use and commercial sale of marijuana in New Hampshire by adults 21 or older passed for the second time in the House of Representatives on Thursday, in a bipartisan 200-163 vote.

Forty-five Republicans voted with Democrats in support of legalization, while 59 Democrats joined Republicans in opposition.

The bill now moves to the Senate, but support for legalization has lost some steam since the first House vote on Feb. 27.
