N.H. House passes bill to legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana!
Historic vote sends strong message to governor
The New Hampshire House of Representatives took a major step forward today, voting 170-162 to approve a bill that would legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana for use by adults in the “Live Free or Die” state.
Unfortunately, Gov. Maggie Hassan has already promised she will veto the bill if it reaches her desk. “I just think it's the wrong message to send to young people,” she explained.
Contact Gov. Hassan’s office and tell her sensible regulation does NOT send the wrong message!
Based on Colorado’s Amendment 64, HB 492 would end New Hampshire’s failed prohibition of marijuana and replace it with a system of sensible regulation. This is the first time any state legislative chamber has approved such a bill, so it’s great to see that New Hampshire legislators have been willing to evolve along with the shift in public opinion!
Next the bill will be referred to the House Ways and Means Committee. A second vote by the House will be held in February or March, and if HB 492 passes a second time, it will head to the Senate.

I feel like this is unfair. If she's going to "veto" the bill if it reaches her desk, she has no chance to make money. Even if it sends out a bad message to young adults, they're still going to do it anyway regardless if it's legal or not. I feel like she shouldn't be so quick to judge marijuana and it's abilities. Marijuana can create jobs, money, and a smile throughout adults who chose to use it.
