Clegg Predicts 'Good Opportunity' for Medical Marijuana in 2009

Do you support or oppose changing the law in New Hampshire to allow seriously and terminally ill patients to use and grow medical marijuana for personal use if their doctors recommend it?

If you said "yes," you are in good company. A poll conducted in April by Mason and Dixon Polling and Research, Inc., found that 71% of New Hampshire voters are now in favor of medical marijuana reform.

Telegraph: Senate just says no to marijuana bill

Kevin Landrigan closed the book on HB 1623 with this article in the May 2 Nashua Telegraph. Pretty much sums it up... :)

NHPR: The Mellowing of Marijuana Laws

"The Exchange" is a very influential hour-long program on New Hampshire Public Radio, and the effort to reduce marijuana penalties was featured Friday, April 25 in a show called "The Mellowing of Marijuana Laws," guest-hosted by Richard Ager. Matt Simon of NH Common Sense and Chief Richard Crate of the Enfield Police Department were in studio for the show, joined by call-in guests Rep. Jeff Fontas, Sen. Lou D'Allesandro, and LEAP's Richard Van Wickler. Enjoy!


Great Hearing Coverage on Free Minds TV

Toby and Nick did a super job covering the April 22 hearing, lots of good video and analysis!

Thanks to "Biker" Bill for this!

4/20 -- Sunday Poll Coverage!

Top statehouse reporters Tom Fahey and Kevin Landrigan covered HB 1623 in their Sunday columns and mentioned our favorable poll results. Here's Fahey's mention in the Union-Leader:

Edwards told us "the hardest thing for us has been the fact that the governor and majority leader wanted to end the conversation before it even started."

4/13 - Great "NH Outlook" Coverage!

This 8 minute segment for NH Public Television (opens in RealPlayer) is a must-watch. NH Outlook's Richard Ager interviewed Gov. Lynch, Sen. Foster, Rep. Bedrick, Rep. Tholl, Rep. Fontas, a judge, and a bunch of college students, but the story is focused on a very courageous individual by the name of Sam Peret. Share it with your friends and family! (Seriously, this clip would be a great introduction to HB 1623 for that family member you've been afraid of approaching.)
