If 2018 has taught us anything, it is how much of an impact the little green plant has left on the United States. Over the course of one day, Michigan became the 10th state to legalize recreational marijuana, while Utah and Missouri officially accepted medical-grade cannabis use. As more states continue to join the cause, the cannabis community has erupted into a firestorm of happiness. While we are familiar with the growth of the pot industry on the West Coast (particularly in California and Colorado), the East Coast also boasts some significant hot spots for marijuana. At this time, Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont have permitted recreational weed, but what about Vermont’s next-door-neighbor? Let’s take a closer look at some facts about legalized cannabis in New Hampshire.

One of the smallest states in the U.S., New Hampshire shares beautiful mountain landscapes with its neighbor Vermont and also provides travelers with easy access to the frigid Canadian North (particularly Quebec). In our nation’s history, New Hampshire served as one of the first states to break away from British rule and served as an official founder of the country we know today. Interestingly, the aptly named Granite State is the home of many famous people including comedian Adam Sandler, astronaut Alan Shepard, poet Robert Frost, and rock musician Rodney James Dio. Besides its contribution to entertainment and mass media, New Hampshire is also a wonderful hot spot for nature lovers, who will greatly enjoy the sweeping views of the Ossipee Mountains and the crystal clear waters of Lake Winnipesaukee.
As of 2013, New Hampshire officially legalized medical marijuana and has distributed the drug to more than 1,300 currently registered patients across the state. At this time, lawmakers are debating about amendments that would permit recreational use, following in the shadow of neighbors Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Back in 2018, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted in favor of recreational pot, but the proposition faced backlash in the Senate.
