We are pleased to announce that cannabis possession has been decriminalized in the great state of New Hampshire. Earlier this week, Governor John Sununu signed legislation that makes the possession of cannabis no longer a criminal offense.
The law includes language that makes up to three quarters of an ounce punishable by a fine. In a perfect world, consumers would be able to carry cannabis just like any other substance, but this is progress.
If a Republican candidate wants to win the 2016 presidential election, they may want to change their opinion on legal marijuana.
Republican voters in Iowa and New Hampshire overwhelmingly support the belief that states should be able to carry out their own marijuana laws without federal interference. In Iowa, 64% of GOP voters said that states should be able to set their own marijuana laws. In New Hampshire, 67% of GOP voters said that the feds should stay out.
