Sununu Signs Bill Allowing Physician Assistants To Prescribe Medical Marijuana

Jun 24, 2019

Physician assistants soon will be able to prescribe medical marijuana in New Hampshire.

Governor Chris Sununu has signed a bill expanding the list of providers who may prescribe the drug. Another bill that would allow medical marijuana users to grow their own plants awaits his signature.

The state won't be legalizing recreational use of marijuana any time soon; The House passed a bill legalizing recreational use in April, but the Senate later voted to delay action on it.
