NH's New Governor Open to Legalizing Medical Marijuana

New Hampshire’s new governor, who is open to legalizing medical marijuana, may lead to the state joining the rest of New England in legalizing the drug.

Democratic governor-elect Maggie Hassan spoke in favor of medical marijuana legislation while running for governor, and her spokesman, Marc Goldberg, said Hassan still remains open to backing such legislation.

Matt Simon, a legislative analyst for the Marijuana Policy Project, told the New Hampshire Union Leader his group is optimistic about passing the law in 2013, and a new bill is expected to be filed this week in the statehouse.

"I think the bill will at least propose patients be allowed to cultivate for themselves or (buy from) dispensaries that are state-licensed," Simon said. "It will be up to the Legislature to go one way or another or both."

Wow... the "Live Free or Die" state...

home of the Free State Project, just NOW, just CONSIDERING MedMar, not even outright legalization?

I vote to revoke their state motto.

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

Let's not lose view of the forest for the trees

Freedom to use drugs, provided you don't hurt anyone else, is a liberty.

Freedom to use a gun, provided you don't hurt anyone else, is a liberty.

But are liberties, overall increasing? Does a politician have a record of increasing or decreasing real, significant liberties? Let's not allow ourselves to be bought off by another totalitarian bent politician offering another red herring.

I have no particular opinion, at this point, on the new governor (which means 'restrictor of freedom') of New Hampshire. Some politicians hope to garner more power by granting non-citizens who didn't 'stand in line' preferential treatment. Some politicians hope to garner more power by appealing to those who smoke marijuana. Time will sort them out ... if we keep our eyes open.

Bill of Rights /Amendment X: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

Do you need a politician or judge to "interpret" those 28
