Legal Topics

New Hampshire is one of the strictest New England states regarding medical marijuana laws.

Medical Marijuana Use:  Medical marijuana use is only legal for New Hampshire reseidents with a valid medical card. New Hampshire residents that have medical marijuana cards can legally purchase and use cannabis.

Medical Marijuana Laws and Penalties: Manufacturing concentrate or hash is a felony. The sale or possession of cannabis with intent to sell is a felony, punishable by up to three years in prison and/or a $25,000 fine for any amount less than one ounce. Penalties and incarceration periods scale considerably as the amount of cannabis increases.

Possession of over 21 grams of cannabis is considered a misdemeanor and carries an incarceration period of up to one year and/or a fine of $350. Possessing up to five grams of hash or concentrates without an MMJ card is considered a civil violation, while more than five grams of hash is a misdemeanor.

Cultivation Not Allowed: Cultivation is held to similar standards as possession or possession with intent to sell. Subsequent offenses occur within 1,000 feet of school grounds, bringing stiffer and higher penalties.

Caregivers

A minor may have two designated caregivers, both of whom must be the patient’s custodial parent or legal guardian.

Caregiver  Requirements:

  • Minimum 21 years old.
  • Caregivers must complete the caregiver application.
  • You must be designated as a caregiver on your patient’s application, and that patient must be approved for the state’s medical marijuana program.
  • Caregivers can serve no more than five patients, except if the qualifying patient and designated caregiver each live greater than 50 miles from the nearest alternative treatment center, in which case the designated caregiver may assist with the therapeutic use of cannabis for up to nine qualifying patients.

  • Caregivers can also be patients
  • There is no application fee for caregivers to apply or renew.

Reciprocity

New Hampshire has limited medical marijuana reciprocity regarding medical marijuana cards from other states.

Recent legislation allows visiting patients with out of state medical marijuana cards to purchase therapeutic cannabis from licensed dispensaries no more than three times in 12 months unless they have a note from their physician.

  • Michigan (at the dispensary’s discretion)
  • Nevada
