Policy Recommendations New Hampshire
2020-21 Improvements and Recommendations
New Hampshire’s state house passed a bill that would allow patients to grow up to six plants at home; however, the bill failed to clear the senate. HB 89 went into effect June 24, 2021 and will add autism spectrum disorder and moderate to severe insomnia to the list of qualifying conditions.
New Hampshire’s registry added about 2,300 new patients and finally broke the 10,000-patient milestone in 2021.
ASA recommends that New Hampshire’s legislature act expediently to address the insufficient retail access across the state by allowing more retailers and producers to be licensed to operate. Lawmakers should also continue their efforts to allow “homegrow” for patients and caregivers to make up for the state’s inadequate retail access. Legislators should also look to cover the gaps in legal protections by expanding patient legal protections in employment and housing discrimination.
