You can also get a written certification from a physician or advanced practice registered nurse who is licensed in Vermont, Maine or Massachusetts. Physician assistants from other states cannot provide written certifications.

Any out-of-state practitioner who provides a written certification for a New Hampshire patient must be the caring for your qualifying condition and be primarily responsible for that care.

About Medical Marijuana in New Hampshire

Unlike most other states with legal medical marijuana, New Hampshire adopted an MMJ program through the legislative process. Governor Maggie Hassan signed the state’s medical marijuana bill into law in July 2013. The bill allowed access to cannabis for chronic or terminal diseases and debilitating medical conditions, but only allowed this option after all other treatment attempts had failed. It was one of the strictest medical marijuana bills at the time and did not allow for patients to grow their own medicine.

Just six months later, the state made history when the legislature voted in favor of HB 492, which would have legalized recreational use, but the bill was unfortunately killed in March with an “inexpedient to legislate” vote.

Cannabis was then decriminalized in 2017, with possession of up to ¾ of an ounce only a $100 fine and no misdemeanor charge for a first or second offense, and a $300 fine for a third. A fourth possession charge within three years is a misdemeanor with a penalty of up to one year in jail.

The state is now refocusing their efforts to support HB 1648, which would legalize possession for adults and allow limited home cultivation. The bill is very similar to Vermont’s legalization law.
