A Deeper Look At This State

Regulatory Framework

New Hampshire legalized medical marijuana in 2013 when it passed House Bill 573. The law established a list of qualifying, albeit restrictive, conditions. Under the law, not only does a patient need a diagnosis of a qualifying condition, but they also have to exhibit severe symptoms of the debilitating condition. In addition, HB 573 requires dispensaries to be not-for-profit and set requirements for MMJ qualifications, as well as purchase and possession limits.

In August 2021, HB 605 added opioid use disorder as a qualifying condition for the state’s medical marijuana program and allowed out-of-state patients to access dispensaries. For out-of-state patients, they must have qualified for medical marijuana in their jurisdiction and show proof of a valid recommendation. It is up to the state Department of Health and Human Services to develop rules for dispensary to verify visiting patients’ eligibility.

What's the Play?

With little support left in the state legislature for adult-use legalization, a limited patient count and a not-for-profit model, NH is challenging to acquire or invest in.
