CONCORD, NH — After many years of back and forth arguing, bills approved, and then vetoed by governors that were Democrats, New Hampshire will probably soon be joining its neighboring New England states in decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana. The state Senate on May 11, 2017, approved HB 640 – legislation that changes the penalty for possession of up to three-quarters of an ounce of marijuana from a criminal penalty to a violation – by a 17 to 6 to vote. With Senate approval, the bill now goes back to the House, where a different version allowing for an ounce of marijuana to be decriminalized was previously approved, and then will head to Sununu’s desk.
