N.H.'s Sentencing Laws & Mandatory Minimums / Marijuana Decriminalization

Mar 29, 2016

With growing concerns nationally and in New Hampshire about a large and expensive prison population, the House recently passed a bill to repeal mandatory minimum sentences for some offenses. And then later we'll look at another House measure to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana.


  • Renny Cushing, Democratic Representative from Hampton. He sponsored both the bill to repeal certain mandatory minimum sentences, and the marijuana decriminalization bill.
  • Scott Murray, County Attorney for Merrimack County. Previously, he was the City Prosecutor of Concord for 28 years.
