"The New Hampshire House Wednesday voted 214-137 to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana, but the measure faces an uncertain future after Gov. John Lynch (D) immediately threatened to veto it. The House tally leaves supporters about 20 votes short of a veto-proof majority."




It would make it a fine to possess up to 7 grams of weed punishable by a $400 fine rather then jail time and a criminal record...



Please let your voice be heard and if you support this bill, let the governor know it

No he's wrong. The .gov wasn't put in to place to tell private citizens what they can consume in the privacy of their own homes.

I know you're a champion of big government, but seriously why don't you worry about yourself.

I would extend this legislation to most of the other recreational drugs. What freely consenting adults do to themselves or other consenting adults in the privacy of their own home is none of my concern. What is of concern is these people driving on the public highways impaired by drugs. But that concern is already covered by DUI laws.

The governor is probably worried about losing Federal "War on Drugs" money more than a few people getting stoned in their back yard.

Me? A champion of big government? Don't let my friends know that!
However, the Governor is doing what he deems appropriate which is the way we do things in the U.S.A.
Write letters, call your Reps. do what you can including voting against Lynch in the next election. I know I will but for other reasons.
I do not want mind altering drugs accepted into my society. I do not endorse marijuana's useage and in that I agree with Gov. Lynch.
NH has enough drug problems and I don't think we should loosen those laws.

I assume you are not in favor of alcohol consumption in NH either?

Correct. I do not drink, neither does my wife. I have had too many alcoholic relatives and friends.
I do recognize the status of alchoholic beverages in NH. If asked my opinion, I will voice it.

I respect your right to not drink or smoke pot. That's great you have chosen to live the way you do. Why do you feel the need to control what I consume on my private property?

Why do you feel you have the right to tell me what I can consume?

100% correct Greg, one of the few times you and I see eye to eye on an issue.

At the house, fine. On the road, nope.

A simple rule, do as you want as long as it doesn't intrude others right to life, liberty, and happiness...

It's pretty easy to comprehend. It's sad to see that some feel that the .gov has to prohibit people from doing what they want in the privacy of their own home.

And for the record I only drink. I don't use pot and have passed dozens of random drug tests. It's not about what I do, it's about allowing people to do as they want in their own homes.
