As marijuana reform continues to make strides across the US, New Hampshire is poised to join the ranks of states taking steps towards legal marijuana regulation. The newly formed New Hampshire Marijuana Legalization Commission is set to convene its first meeting next week, beginning with consideration of a state-run cannabis reform model that could make cannabis accessible to those over 21 in the state. Surrounded by national momentum and public support, the commission is taking its responsibility to create comprehensive, safe marijuana legislation seriously.
1. New Hampshire Pot Reforms: State Officials Ready to Consider Proposals
New Hampshire has seen a huge shift in opinion when it comes to cannabis reform. The state has been considering a series of proposals that could legalize the drug in the coming months, and officials are now ready to look at legislation more seriously. Here’s what’s on the table:
Legalization for Adults 21 and Over: Currently, New Hampshire state officials are debating a bill that would legalize marijuana for people 21 and over. This would open up the use of cannabis for recreational use, as well as the possibility of medical marijuana use in the state.
Establishing a Regulatory and Tax Framework: Another bill being discussed would establish a new regulatory and tax framework for the marijuana industry. This would provide added security and oversight to the sale and distribution of cannabis products, as well as bring in additional tax revenue for the state.
- Establish an effective tax rate for marijuana sales
- Create regulations to ensure safety, quality, and accessibility
- Generate additional state revenue from the industry
The state is clearly ready to consider proposals regarding cannabis reform, and the potential benefits to the economy could be significant. With more research and consideration, New Hampshire could be on its way to becoming the first state in the northeast to fully legalize marijuana.
2. Marijuana Legalization Commission Takes Shape Ahead of Crucial Meeting
With the federal government’s plan to legalize marijuana in the near future edging closer, it’s time for the Marijuana Legalization Commission (MLC) to make sure that legalization is done in a thoughtful and responsible manner. Last month, the MLC announced the names of the 16 members who will be part of the commission.
The MLC is a diverse group of individuals, including doctors, lawyers, civil servants, and business people. They are tasked with making sure that the legalization of cannabis will be beneficial for the entire country. They will look at the possible health and economic effects of legalizing cannabis, as well as potential issues with enforcement and regulation. They will also create a plan for legal cannabis regulations.
- Chairperson: Professor Martha Skeins, University of Ottawa
- Expert Advisors:Senator Karen Montgomery, RCMP Deputy Commissioner Jeanette McDougall, and Dr. Jane Fairweather
- Stakeholders: David Pittman (Lawyer), Alexandra Hill (Business Person)
The MLC will hold its first meeting on April 25th, where they will discuss areas of focus and develop a timeline for their upcoming work. They will also review the research and recommendations already made on cannabis legalization. The results of their research and discussions will be presented to the government and could result in the shape of the eventual cannabis legislation.
