NH House considers legalizing 1 ounce of marijuana

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Despite opposition from the governor, New Hampshire's House is considering legalizing up to 1 ounce of marijuana for recreational use for anyone age 21 and older.

The House votes as soon as Wednesday whether to send the Senate the bill that also would legalize growing up to six plants. It would allow up to 10 cultivation facilities to be established and apply a $60 per ounce tax at the wholesale level.

The House voted 170-162 in January to give preliminary approval to the bill and asked the chamber's tax writing committee to review it. The committee voted 14-5 to recommend killing the bill because it legalized commercial sales of the drug without proper controls.

Bill supporters argue consumers already are using marijuana without the protections the bill would provide.
