If you live in N.H., urge your senator to support HB 364; hearing on legalization bill will continue May 7
For the first time in history, a New Hampshire Senate committee has voted to approve a bill allowing home cultivation of medical cannabis. HB 364, which has already passed the House in a voice vote, was voted “ought to pass” yesterday in a 3-2 vote of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee.
For the sake of patients who are still struggling because of limited access to cannabis, please contact your senator right now and urge him or her to support HB 364!
HB 364 would allow possession of three mature plants, three immature plants, and 12 seedlings for each patient. The bill is critically important because many patients are unable to afford the products that are available at dispensaries, which are not covered by health insurance. For some patients, home cultivation is simply the best, most affordable option.
Additionally, for those who were not able to testify at yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the legalization bill (HB 481), there will be another opportunity to testify on Tuesday, May 7, beginning at 9 a.m. in State House Room 100. There were so many people waiting to speak that they decided to continue the hearing. Please mark your calendars for May 7 right now!
After you contact your senator in support of the home cultivation bill, please share this message with your family and friends.
