Excerpted from ASA's 2022 State of the States Report.

In 2023, ASA recommends legislators tread carefully as they work toward passage and implementation of the adult-use/recreational market. Medical cannabis and adult-use/recreational cannabis are not the same, and the consumer populations within each group are distinct, with their
own needs. An adult-use/recreational program alone is not sufficient for medical cannabis patients, and lawmakers must ensure that the adult-use/recreational market is separate from the medical cannabis market, and policymakers must continue to make improvements on the medical side for patients.

In light of the adult-use/recreational laws, New Hampshire should also focus on passing provisions included in ASA’s Medical Cannabis Equity Checklist.
