Gubernatorial candidates Ovide Lamontagne and Maggie Hassan.
CONCORD – New Hampshire stands a much better chance of legalizing medical use of marijuana than at any time in state history.
That’s because for the first time, both major political parties have nominated a candidate – Republican Ovide Lamontagne, of Manchester, and Democrat Maggie Hassan, of Exeter – who embrace the change.
Three-time Libertarian candidate John Babiarz, of Grafton, likewise has endorsed New Hampshire becoming the 18th state to make marijuana available to chronically ill patients.
