Vermont joins Massachusetts and Maine where recreational marijuana is already legal. But, top officials in New Hampshire, including Governor Chris Sununu, remain against it. Sununu's Addiction and Behavioral Health Advisor, David Mara, was at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center earlier this week.

"At this time where we are struggling to get help with addiction, it is not a good time to be legalizing marijuana and introducing our children to another drug," Mara said.
