    Wink NH Governor signs 3rd medical cannabis bill in 2 weeks

    Governor Sununu signed a third medical cannabis bill in the last two weeks of June. HB 160 was signed on June 28th. The majority of the bill's sponsors endorsed Rand Paul when he ran for President. HB 160 started out as two different bills, but the NH Senate combined them into one.

    This bill:
    I. Adds certain conditions to the definition of "qualifying medical condition" for the purposes of the use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes law. [Makes it easier for people to be patients]
    II. Deletes the requirement that a medical provider document how the injury affects activities of daily living. [makes it easier for every patient to get medical cannabis]
    III. Clarifies the statements signed by applicants for a registry identification card. [Warns people about the federal language related to illegal substance use and firearms]

    Sununu signs medical marijuana bill into law expanding number of qualifying ill patients
    CONCORD — Governor Chris Sununu signed a bill into law Wednesday that expands the number of seriously ill patients who qualify for New Hampshire's medical cannabis law.

    Beginning on Aug. 27, HB 160 will add PTSD and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome to the medical cannabis law and make other improvements to the program.

    According to the Marijuana Policy Project, th bill will also add "moderate to severe pain" as a qualifying symptom, allows medical providers to certify patients for any medical condition that produces a qualifying symptom, and requires the Department of Health and Human Services to inform patients about the possibility that certain rights and privileges may be denied by federal agencies.
