alcohol  marijuana new hampshire pollBy Erik Altieri, NORML Communications Director

Polling data released this week by the University of New Hampshire found that a majority of adults in New Hampshire support selling marijuana at state liquor stores with regulations similar to how the state handles alcohol.

The survey, conducted from January 30th to February 5th, asked 581 New Hampshire adults “if small amounts of marijuana were legalized for personal use in New Hampshire, would you approve or disapprove of marijuana being sold at state liquor stores and taxed at levels similar to alcohol or tobacco?” 56% of respondents said they approved of the concept, 37% said they opposed, and 5% were unsure.

Respondents were also asked about their support for medical marijuana. 79% said they supported allowing doctors in New Hampshire to prescribe small amounts of marijuana for patients suffering from serious illnesses, only 14% were opposed, and 5% were neutral.

Politicians in the state have the opportunity to act on this public enthusiasm, as there is currently both legalization and medical marijuana measures pending before the state legislature.

If you live in New Hampshire, you can use NORML’s Take Action Center to easily contact your state officials and urge them to support these two important legislative measures. Click here for the marijuana legalization alert and here for the medical marijuana measure.

There are dozens of other marijuana law reform measures pending in numerous states. Click here to find out if your state is one.

  1. Yeah but if they did a lot of beer would go bad, yes, it does have an expiration date, because everyone would switch to Marijuana,, Think of the tax loss from alcohol AND cigarette sales.

    I quit drinking 3 years ago and stopped smoking 1 1/2 years ago because marijuana worked for me.

    Half a joint a day, one or two hit’s and my day is perfect.

    Oh, and think of the money that would be lost to the domestic violence people,, no more drunk a whole’s beating up on their husbands and children.

  2. Like in all the states looking to legalize, this would bring in cash for all of NH’s industries. For example I usually go skiing in VT but I would sure as hell go to NH instead if they legalized.

  3. See….this is the thing. Just ask the people. They’ll tell you what they want to do about this plant prohibition. Be done with it.
