While recreational marijuana isn’t legal in New Hampshire, hemp now is – in theory, however, not reality.
That’s because House Bill 459, the bill the Legislature passed at the end of June and signed into law by Gov. Chris Sununu on July 30, has a rather big caveat
The bill explicitly says that hemp – a product used in everything from making rope to waffles but banned for decades because of its similarity to its cousin, marijuana – “may be grown as a crop, processed, possessed and commercially traded in New Hampshire.”
