N.H. Senate Refuses To Consider Marijuana Decriminalization Bill
New Hampshire's Senate has refused to consider a House bill that would have decriminalized possession of up to an ounce of marijuana.
Without comment, the Senate sent the bill back to the House on Thursday, citing a Senate rule on not considering bills killed in the first year of the two-year legislative session. The move effectively kills the bill.
The Senate rejected a bill to decriminalize possession of up to one-quarter ounce of the drug last year. Gov. Maggie Hassan also opposes decriminalization.
The House bill would have made possession of up to an ounce a violation. The House has passed similar measures each of the past five years.
