Just wondering.
Lots of smokers in NH and lots of "Live Free or Die" pride, so why are NH's laws on the harsher side of the spectrum?
Links:
State Laws
4. New Hampshire*Pictures - CBS News <- #4 on the list of "stoner states"
How Free Is Your State? The Nation's Most Libertarian States | LegalZoom <- #1 libertarian state, but interesting that NH is only #13 for personal freedom.

It's the "Granite State" - Not the "Stoner State" -
The closest thing to stoner would be Oklahoma - The "Sooner State"

That doesn't make much sense does it. I'm not an advocate of pot use, but, I find it silly to have pot illegal when liquor is far more dangerous and legal.

Aptor, pot isn't illegal because of it's altered-senses ability. Pot is illegal because back in the 1800s, the cotton industry wanted the hemp industry squelched so it could have the market (hemp rope & fabric being cheaper and sturdier than cotton...), and they had better lobbiers. and since pot is related to hemp.... all cannabis plants were made illegal. Personally, I'd like to see hemp fabric back!

curious as to WHY you would not legalize a medicinal product when alcohol is legal?

Alcohol kills. It is more toxic, addictive, harms the body and leads to violence. Alcohol is a far more harmful drug.

Try being open minded to the truth about a product that was used for 5000 years before being made illegal. It's had more drug testing than any other drug on the market.


The CDC claims that alcohol is responsible for 37,000+ deaths annually.

SAFER - Marijuana vs. Alcohol


the push to make pot legal passed both the NH House and the Senate. The democratic governor chose to veto the bill against the majority votes. IOW's the people of the state want to legalize the drug, but he chose to exercise his power and voted against the people.

Alchohol is SO bad for you yet we continue to endorse it as a country.
