New Hampshire’s House of Representatives Rejected a Plan for State-Run Cannabis Stores


New Hampshire’s House of Representatives rejected a plan for legalizing marijuana sales through state-run stores, favored by the Governor and Senate. This creates a hurdle in legalizing marijuana in the state.

  • The House prefers a different model than the state-run one proposed by the Governor and approved by the Senate.
  • The Governor said he would veto any plan that doesn’t follow his vision.
  • The proposed state-run model would have limited sales to a small number of stores with strict government control.
  • This model is seen as unusual compared to other states that have legalized marijuana.

Lawmakers will now try to find a compromise in a conference committee, but it’s unclear if they can reconcile the different visions.
