So I haven’t been to New Hampshire since I was a kid and my school at a week long field trip to a farm where we basically did farm work for free, cleaning cow shit is no fun. That’s not what this post is about though, it’s about the fact that yesterday they fell two votes short of allowing medical marijuana in the state. They would have been the 14th American state to do so, instead they just suck.
The Senate’s 14-10 vote did not reach the two-thirds needed for passage. Earlier in the day the House voted 240-115 to pass the bill over Lynch’s objections.
Lynch cited concerns over cultivation, distribution, and the potential for abuse. He also said the bill did not clearly restrict marijuana use to people with severe pain, seizures, or nausea.
The bill would have established three nonprofit “compassion centers’’ to dispense 2 ounces of marijuana every 10 days to severely ill patients whose doctors approve the drug’s use. The state would have licensed the centers and issued identification cards to their staff, approved patients, and care- givers.
Supporters said that the bill would provide relief to people with chronic or terminal illnesses.
“This is a bill about compassion. It is about using a drug that is relatively safe,’’ said Senator Peggy Gilmour, Democrat of Hollis. “It is up to 16 of us to look at those who suffer and say, ‘I understand and I will help.’ ’’
Opponents said the bill would invite abuse.
Isn’t it bad enough that people live in New Hampshire, where this is nothing to do but fuck and have farms? Do they have to make chronically ill people continue to suffer? Get it together New Hampshire.
