New Hampshire House Approves Marijuana Legalization Bill For Second Time, Sending It To Senate

The New Hampshire House of Representatives has approved a bill to legalize marijuana for a second time this session, sending it to the Senate.

The proposal, which is being sponsored by Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R) and Minority Leader Matthew Wilhelm (D), cleared the chamber in a 272-109 vote on Thursday. Earlier in the day the body rejected an amendment that would have added separate legalization language to budget legislation.

HB 639, the bill that is now heading to the Senate, already got approval from the full House in February, but it needed to go to the Ways & Means Committee, where it was amended last month, before returning to the floor for final passage.

Osborne said in a press release that he is “pleased to see New Hampshire take a step toward relieving gangsters and thugs from control of this market, keeping dangerous untested products away from consumers, and protecting children from harmful age-inappropriate products.”

Wilhelm said that “with the decisive passage of HB 639, the New Hampshire House has sent a strong message that this is the year to legalize adult-use cannabis in the Granite State.
