NH Senate shoots down marijuana decriminalization

Posted: Updated:
CONCORD, N.H. -

New Hampshire will not be joining the list of states in the region to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana.

The Senate rejected a proposal to remove criminal penalties for possessing up to a quarter ounce of pot.

Lawmakers called the bill deeply flawed, saying there were no age restrictions, and the bill would make marijuana possession restrictions more lenient than alcohol or tobacco.
