In all the attempts to legalize marijuana in past legislative sessions, the idea has never received a positive vote from the House Criminal Justice Committee, until Thursday.
After a heated debate, the committee voted 10-9 to endorse House Bill 481, which would legalize and tax marijuana for adult recreational use in the Granite State.
The bill now heads to the House, which is expected to vote on it next Wednesday or Thursday. If it passes, it will most likely be referred to the House Finance Committee for a second review, since it involves state finances, and then another vote in the House.
