New Hampshire Marijuana Vote Pushes Vermont To New England ‘Domino Effect’

NEW HAMPSHIRE:  The dominoes are falling all across New England.

The New Hampshire House of Representatives made history last week when it became the first state Legislature to vote in favor of a bill to legalize the sale and possession of recreational marijuana.

“Polls show 60 percent of voters in the state support (the bill), and we won’t rest until that includes a majority of their state legislators,” Marijuana Policy Project legislative analyst Matt Simon said in a statement last week.

If the bill survives committee and a final vote is signed off by the governor, New Hampshire would join the pot-friendly New England town of Portland, Maine, which voted to legalize it on Election Day 2013 in a special referendum, and a host of other states and municipalities looking to ax the prohibition on cannabis.
