New Hampshire could soon be the next state to remove the danger of prison time for having little measures of cannabis. A month ago, the state’s House of Representatives affirmed a bill to decriminalize up to half of an ounce of cannabis. On Tuesday, the enactment, which would supplant criminal punishments with common fines, will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Despite the fact that the bill has potential following its passage through the House by a voice vote, advocates bring up that similar bills have been executed by the Senate lately.

“The New Hampshire Senate has killed six House-approved decriminalization bills since 2008, but it’s possible that the seventh time will be the charm, and that the ‘Live Free or Die’ state will become the final New England state to decriminalize marijuana possession by passing HB 1631 into law,” New England political director for the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), Matt Simon, said in an interview.

The group is requesting that supporters call their state senators and the workplace of Gov. Maggie Hassan and urge them to at last institute decriminalization this year. Hassan, at the moment running as a Democratic for U.S. Senate, hasn’t been particularly amicable to cannabis law change amid her residency. In spite of the fact that she marked a restorative cannabis bill into law in 2013, her organization has been blamed for moderate strolling its usage. She additionally unequivocally contradicts legalization. A survey released by WMUR last month found that 62 percent of New Hampshire inhabitants support full legalization of pot.

“Public support for this reform is overwhelming, and there are no good arguments for continuing to waste limited resources on marijuana possession arrests and related court appearances,” Simon added. “However, the democratic process has failed many times before in the New Hampshire Senate, and unless we start to see some clear leadership from the governor’s office, it may fail yet again in 2016.”
