NEW HAMPSHIRE: A committee helping to implement New Hampshire’s new medical marijuana law is holding its first meeting.
Under the law passed three months ago, seriously ill patients diagnosed with cancer, Crohn’s disease and other conditions will be allowed to possess up to 2 ounces of marijuana obtained by dispensaries.
The law also created a 15-member committee to help the state write rules to implement the law, track how it works and recommend changes.
Gov. Maggie Hassan signed the law after lawmakers agreed to drop a provision allowing the patients to grow marijuana at home. The compromise also dropped post-traumatic stress disorder as a qualifying condition.
