Lawmakers studying marijuana legalization meet again today and this time they will hear from the former state administrator of pot policy in Colorado.


Andrew Freedman is now a consultant on marijuana regulation. He served three years as Colorado's first director of marijuana coordination.


State Rep. Patrick Abrami, chairman of the New Hampshire commission studying legalization, says Freedman is scheduled to speak via video conference call.


Monday will be the commission's fourth meeting. Eight states, including Massachusetts, have legalized recreational marijuana.
