We will need two-thirds majorities to overcome Gov. Sununu's veto threat. If you live in New Hampshire, call your state representatives today!

New Hampshire's legalization bill, HB 481, passed the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee today in a 10-9 vote. Although the House of Representatives has voted to pass legalization bills on two previous occasions (2014 and 2018), this is the first time any New Hampshire legislative committee has ever recommended in favor of legalization.

Next, the bill will be scheduled for a vote in the full House of Representatives. Please call your state representative(s) today and encourage them to support HB 481, the bill to legalize, regulate, and tax cannabis.

You can read a summary of the bill here, and talking points, poll numbers, studies, and other resources in support of HB 481 are available on this page.

If you are able to speak with legislators and learn where they stand, it would be very helpful if you could share the details with me via email.

After you call your state legislators, please forward this message to your family and friends!
