N.H. Lawmakers Amend Medical Marijuana Bill

Concord, New Hampshire - June 12, 2009

A New Hampshire legislative committee has changed the language of the medical marijuana bill which allows patients with debilitating illnesses to receive small amounts of pot.

The original bill let patients grow it at their home, but now they would need to go to a state certified "compassion center." The bill allows for up to three centers to be built initially. The House and Senate passed the original version of the bill earlier this year. The House will vote on the new version later this month.
