The Republican-led New Hampshire House on Wednesday passed legislation that would allow seriously ill patients to use marijuana.
The House voted 236-96 to approve SB 409. The Senate passed the bill by a 13-11 vote in March.
The bill will return to the state Senate for a concurrence vote before heading to the governor’s desk.
Only patients with serious chronic or terminal diseases, such as cancer, AIDS and Parkinson’s, would be eligible to possess marijuana.
