Supporters of legalizing marijuana have shifted gears for the 2020 legislative session, pursuing a bill to permit adults to grow or possess pot while keeping it a crime to commercially sell the drug.
State Rep. Carol McGuire, R-Epsom, said the legalization campaign in 2019 got bogged down in the New Hampshire House of Representatives over the details for how best to tax and regulate commercial sale of the drug.
“This bill takes it out of the commercial realm and lets people grow their own and use it at home,” McGuire said at a news conference prior to a public hearing on the bill (HB 1648).
