This afternoon the New Hampshire House voted to provide a safe and cost-effective alternative to marijuana prohibition for adults. The House became New Hampshire's first legislative chamber to vote to legalize, tax and regulate marijuana. If enacted, the bill (HB 492) will direct scarce public resources to tackling violent crimes, general revenue, and end unfairly harsh consequences that burden individuals, their families, and their communities. The bill has now been referred to the House Ways and Means Committee.
