New Hampshire adult-use cannabis legalization advances to Senate

New Hampshire lawmakers advanced a bipartisan bill to legalize adult-use cannabis in the state.

The New Hampshire House of Representatives – the biggest state Legislature in the country – voted 272-109 on Thursday to pass HB 639.

The bill now heads to the state Senate, which killed a legalization proposal a year ago.

If passed, the measure would legalize up to 4 ounces of recreational marijuana for adults 21 and older and tax regulated sales at 12.5%.

It’s not immediately clear what the Senate plans to do.

However, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has said he does not expect state lawmakers to send a legalization bill to his desk.

New Hampshire is the only New England state that hasn’t legalized adult-use sales.

There are legal markets in bordering Maine and Massachusetts, both of which legalized recreational cannabis in 2016 via ballot initiatives.
