It’s the end of the road for efforts to legalize recreational marijuana in New Hampshire, at least for the 2019 legislative session.
The Senate is expected to vote this week to keep the legalization bill, HB 481, in committee for the rest of this year, with plans to try again in 2020.
“We’re going to hear it again in January, but our thinking was we heard a lot of testimony from people who had concerns, and we wanted to make sure those were addressed to the best of our ability,” said state Sen. Melanie Levesque, D-Nashua, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
