As we informed you yesterday, the big vote on New Hampshire's legalization bill, HB 481, has been scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. Gov. Chris Sununu has made it clear that he will veto the bill if it reaches his desk, but it will be possible to override his veto if at least two-thirds of the House and Senate can be convinced to support the bill.
If you haven't already spoken to your state representatives, please call them one last time today and encourage them to support HB 481, the bill to legalize, regulate, and tax cannabis. (If you tried calling before and encountered difficulties, please try again — there were a few bugs, but they have now been fixed.)
