I grow medical marijuana for my father, a vet who suffers from migraines and anxiety.-- Elliott, Washington, USA
It looks like patients in New Hampshire will be able to legally acquire medical marijuana in the near future. The bill that would make this possible has passed the senate. Eighteen votes were in favor of the bill, while six votes were against.
Qualified patients are not allowed to grow medical marijuana themselves, like in other states. They can only get their marijuana from state licensed marijuana dispensaries, which whom they’ll have to have a medical relationship for at least three months. This is the result of changes to convince senator John Reagan to sign the bill when needed.
Patients can qualify when they suffer, among others, cancer, glaucoma, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease or traumatic brain injury. They are allowed to possess up to two ounces of marijuana at a time.
Medical marijuana has already been legalized in 17 states. New Hampshire is not yet among them, while neighboring states Vermont and Maine are.
