US (NH): Senate rejects House-passed legalization bill

The New Hampshire Senate has rejected a House-passed bill to legalize cannabis.

Just two days after receiving an unfavorable recommendation from the Senate Judiciary Committee, the full chamber defeated the measure in a 14-10 vote on Thursday.

Following the committee vote on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Sharon Carson (R) predicted that the legislation from bipartisan House leaders would fail on the floor. The governor also recently expressed opposition to the reform.

HB 639 is one of several cannabis bills that have advanced through the House this session. The Senate Judiciary Committee also voted this week to designate a home grow measure for medical cannabis patients and a non-commercial legalization bill “inexpedient to legislate.”
