"Legalization" Gets A Surprisingly Positive Hearing

'Course, to be fair, some of the Live Free Or Die State's New England neighbors have lit up a bit of a political blaze since the last time the NH state legislature visited this issue, what with MA and ME effectively ending (at least at the state level) "The War on People Who Use (Some) Drugs"™. And in addition to the continued stat that about two-thirds of voters want it, there's perhaps an air of inevitability and resignation finally entering the (selectively) unaltered consciousness of the prohibitionists.

Here, the NH House Criminal Justice Committee receives testimony on HB656, "relative to the legalization and regulation of marijuana," 2/1/2017. The NH House, of course, was the first legislative body in the country to pass cannabis legalization, so there's no excuse it can't do it again. Let your Representatives know you've got their backs.
