The New Hampshire House took a vote on H.B. 492, which would effectively nullify the federal prohibition on marijuana if signed in to law. The bill passed the House with a vote of 170:162.

“I supported this bill. The billions of dollars used to fight marijuana is a failure and something else needs to be done. Expected tax revenue will be in the 10’s of millions, we can stop ruining individuals and families for something as little as a seed, save the 6 million of enforcement $’s, ends many less than 1 oz dealers, legalizes something that over 2/3rds of the people want, and if it is a really bad idea, it can always be repealed,” said Rep. John Hikel (R).

H.B. 492 would allow persons aged 21 or older to possess one ounce of marijuana and up to six plants. The bill was co-sponsored in a bipartisan fashion by Reps. Vaillancourt (R), Winters (D), Robertson (D), Warden (R) and Lambert (R).

“The rapidly growing and wildly successful state-level movement to legalize marijuana, either completely, or for medical use, proves that states can successfully nullify unconstitutional federal acts. The feds can claim the authority to prohibit pot all they want, but it clearly has done nothing to deter states from moving forward with plans to allow it, pushed by the will of the people,” Tenth Amendment Center executive director Michael Boldin said.

Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) has pledged to veto any legislation that reaches her desk, but activists in the state aren’t deterred.

Rep. George Lambert (R) tells us that the bill has strong bipartisan support. He also said that the Free State Project has been very active in progressing this legislation. “The Free State Project has worked tirelessly to make New Hampshire a truly free state.”

Lambert says that the legislation closely mirrors Colorado’s plan. He also adds that  he supports marijuana legalization without taxation.

Lambert  says that he is not happy with the democratic governor’s opposition against the bill, but feels that the bill may have a chance.
