WIRE: New Hampshire Governor signs medical marijuana expansion measure

Concord, NH — Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has signed legislation into law expanding medical cannabis access.

House Bill 157 permits physicians to recommend cannabis therapy to patients with “moderate to severe chronic pain.” Senate Bill 17 makes it easier for patients suffering from hepatitis C to qualify for the program.

A third measure, House Bill 160, seeks to allow doctors to recommend medical cannabis to patients with post-traumatic stress. The bill awaits action from the Governor.

Over 2,000 patients are registered in the state’s medical marijuana program.
