New Hampshire House Approves Marijuana Sales

New Hampshire’s House of Representatives on Wednesday approved legalizing marijuana for recreational use, making it the first state legislative chamber ever to do so, according to the Marijuana Policy Project, a pro-legalization group.

The bill regulates marijuana in much the same way it will be regulated in Colorado and Washington, where voters, not legislators, approved legalization. The beginning of legal sales of pot in Colorado on Jan. 1 made national—and potentially world—history, experts say.

via The N.H. House just became the first state body to OK pot sales, group says.
