New Hampshire’s House lawmakers passed a bill Thursday to legalize recreational marijuana, though support appears to be waning and wouldn’t be enough to override a promised veto.

The final House vote to send the bill to the Senate was 200-163, compared to a preliminary 209-147 vote in February to send the bill to the House Ways and Means Committee. Even if it passes the Senate by a wide margin, overriding a veto requires a two-thirds majority in both chambers, and absent a major shift in momentum, the support isn’t there in the House.
