Thread: With 90% Support NH House Decriminalizes Cannabis

    Cool With 90% Support NH House Decriminalizes Cannabis

    90% of the state house members that voted today (318-36), voted for HB 640 which would decriminalize possession of up to an ounce of cannabis.

    That's not bad. Out of the 400 member body, only around 36 of them are opposed to common sense on this issue. That is a 9 to 1 vote in favor. Last year the vote was only 5 to 1 in the NH House. Unfortunately, last year we had Democrat Governor Maggie Hassan. She got the Democrat senators to kill the people because she hates freedom. NH voters punished her by forcing her to live in a swamp

    Now we have a Republican governor that campaigned on decriminalizing cannabis so the NH Senate should be more friendly. But hey, it is never to early to contract you senator.

    The Governor recently signed this into law.

    New Hampshire governor signs marijuana decriminalization bill
    By Andrew Blake - The Washington Times - Wednesday, July 19, 2017

    The Live Free or Die State has become the last in New England to decriminalize marijuana after New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu autographed a bill rolling back penalties for cannabis possession.

    The Republican governor signed his name Tuesday to H.B. 640 , culminating a yearslong, bipartisan bid to reduce criminal penalties for individuals caught with small amounts of pot.
    New Hampshire is now on course to become the 22nd state in the country — and the last in New England — to decriminalize marijuana once the bill takes effect Sept. 16.

    “Now all of New England is a decriminalized marijuana zone!” tweeted Marijuana Majority, a cannabis law reform group.

    Similar attempts at decriminalizing marijuana within New Hampshire have partially succeeded in the past, but Mr. Sununu’s Democratic predecessor, Maggie Hassan, adamantly opposed those efforts and vowed to veto any related bills while in office.

    Mr. Sununu campaigned on decriminalizing weed and previously called H.B. 640 “common-sense marijuana reform.”

    “The governor deserves credit for his steadfast support of this commonsense reform,” Matt Simon, Marijuana Policy Project’s New England political director, said in a statement. “Unlike his predecessors, who opposed similar proposals, Gov. Sununu appears to understand that ‘Live Free or Die’ is more than just a motto on a license plate.”

    Governor Signs New Hampshire Marijuana Decriminalization Bill Into Law
    HB 640 will take effect in 60 days, making New Hampshire the 22nd state in the nation to eliminate the possibility of jail time for simple marijuana possession.

    HB 640 was introduced by Rep. Renny Cushing and a bipartisan group of co-sponsors in the House of Representatives, where it received overwhelming approval in February (318-36). The Senate amended and approved it on May 11 (17-6), and the House passed the Senate version by a voice vote on June 1.
    ...
    “There is no good reason to continue arresting and prosecuting people for marijuana possession,” Simon said. “Marijuana is objectively less harmful than alcohol, and Granite Staters are ready to see it treated that way. A very strong majority of state residents support ending marijuana prohibition altogether.

    “New Hampshire lawmakers should continue to follow their constituents’ lead on this issue,” Simon said. “Every state in New England is either implementing or strongly considering legislation to regulate marijuana for adult use. It is time for the Legislature to develop a realistic marijuana prohibition exit strategy for New Hampshire.”

    More than two-thirds of New Hampshire adults (68%) support making marijuana legal, according to a Granite State Poll released last month by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center.
