New Hampshire legislators have passed a bill that would make the state the 14th to legalize marijuana for severely ill people — if the governor signs it.
Gov. John Lynch says he has not read the final version passed late Wednesday afternoon, but remains concerned about preventing marijuana cultivation and distribution.
Supporters say New Hampshire’s proposed law stands out because it would bar users or their caregivers from growing marijuana. The weed would have to be grown and distributed in nonprofit "compassion centers."
