I received the following legislative alert out of New Hampshire:

The New Hampshire House has overwhelmingly passed several marijuana policy reforms, and five will receive public hearings in the Senate on Tuesday, April 11. This is a very important day for advocacy at the state house, so please check your calendar and see if you can visit Concord next Tuesday!

Here are the details:

WHAT AND WHEN: Senate Judiciary Committee and Health and Human Services Committee hearings on five marijuana policy reform bills:

9:20 a.m. — HB 640 would reduce the penalty for possessing up to an ounce of marijuana from a misdemeanor to a violation punishable only by a fine.

1:15 p.m. — HB 160 would add post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a qualifying condition for the medical cannabis program.
