CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – A New Hampshire legislative committee has voted 13-7 for a bill that would allow seriously ill patients to grow and use marijuana for medcinal purposes.
The bill, passed by the House Health and Human Services Committee, heads to the full House for a vote next week.
The bill requires patients to be certified by a doctor before they grow or possess up to six plants or two ounces of marijuana.
Thirteen states have medical marijuana bills on the books.
The House defeated a similar bill two years ago.
