Changes to New Hampshire Marijuana Laws

Since June 10, 2016, New Hampshire has sanctioned therapeutic cannabis (medical marijuana), and allows for up to 2 ounces of usable cannabis for a “qualifying patient.”  Effective September 16, 2017, New Hampshire decriminalized personal use amounts of marijuana (3/4 of an ounce or less), hashish (5 grams or less), and certain marijuana-infused products for persons over age 21.  Possession of these amounts is still a misdemeanor criminal offense for anyone under age 21, or for someone with 4 or more convictions within a 3 year period.  It is also a crime for adults in New Hampshire to negligently store marijuana-infused products, to possess more than the alotted amounts, or to operate a motor vehicle under the influence of any drug.
