House Committee To Consider "Home-Grow" For Medical Marijuana... Again

Feb 11, 2015

  The New Hampshire House committee on Health, Human Services and Elderly Affairs will hear bills to expand the medical marijuana law Wednesday.

One bill would reintroduce a home-grow provision which had been proposed in a failed bill last year and it was cut from the therapeutic cannabis law’s original language.

It would allow qualified patients to grow a certain amount of cannabis in their home and require them to report their cultivation location to the state.

Proponents argue it would provide patients with relief sooner than if they wait for the state to set up its authorized dispensaries.

Governor Maggie Hassan is opposed to the measure and would likely veto if it reaches her.

Another bill would add lupus, epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease to the list of qualifying conditions.
