New Hampshire is surrounded by states who have legal cannabis. Every border of the Granite State has a legal cannabis store on the other side. The reality is that more than 100,000 Granite Staters use cannabis and cannabis products on a regular basis. It is far past time to stop treating cannabis users as criminals and end all the collateral consequences that come with prohibition.
Legalizing cannabis would go a long way towards improving public trust with law enforcement since over 70% of Granite Staters, according to multiple polls, support legalizing cannabis. Such a divide between law enforcement policy and public opinion is a recipe for the distrust we see of our criminal justice system today. This must be corrected to ensure our justice system has the trust to carry out its critical business of keeping Granite Staters safe from more serious threats.
Tell Senators and Governor Sununu to Support House Bill 639 to finally legalize cannabis in the Granite State!
