NEW HAMPSHIRE: There’s growing support for decriminalizing the possession of a small amounts of marijuana in New Hampshire.
The New Hampshire House voted overwhelmingly Wednesday in favor of a bill that makes carrying a half-ounce or less of cannabis a violation-level offense, like a speeding ticket.
The House has voted six times in its history to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana, but never by such a landslide margin. The measure received just under 300 votes.
Supporters said it’s a reflection of major change on what used to be a controversial issue.
