NH Moves in Pro-Freedom Direction on MMJ
New Hampshire finally joins the rest of New England in legalizing the use of marijuana for therapeutic purposes. Governor Maggie Hassan signed HB573, legalizing cannabis for therapeutic purposes on Tuesday, July 23, 2013. You can read more about it here. If you are interested in the history of attempts made by activists over the past several years to legalize medical marijuana/push forward decriminalization, watch the documentary Libertopia, which is now available for free viewing on Youtube. From their website: "Libertopia is a time capsule of the Free State Project from 2008 - 2009. It follows three members of the Free State Project -- ordinary citizens attempting to reclaim a voice against a government which they believe shares neither their priorities nor their interests. Often considered radicals in their hometowns, they have begun a mass migration to 21st Century New Hampshire. The film presents a nation-trekking examination of a high-minded but ultimately practical group of people and their beliefs. Libertopia is a microscopic view of a growing, 13,000-person [14,500] strong movement with three of its sojourners as the lens."
