NH House give OK to homegrown marijuana for people who need it
The use of medical marijuana for patients suffering from severe illnesses was passed into law last year. The version passed by the House contained a so-called “home grow” provision, but Hassan strongly opposed that part of the bill and said she would veto the overall bill if the provision were included.
“Home grow” supporters said it would be cheaper and allow immediate relief for patient instead of forcing them to wait at least two years until a system to dispense the drug was established. But faced with the veto threat, the House relented and accepted the bill without the “home grow” provision.
The bill passed Thursday allows patients who cannot wait for the alternative treatment centers to grow and possess no more than two mature plants and 12 seedlings.
He said the MPP is optimistic the Senate will pass the bill.
