New Hampshire Prepares For Medical Marijuana


After a few attempts and two defeats by veto, New Hampshire became the last New England state to pass a medical marijuana bill into law. The law is one of the strictest in the country as users cannot grow their own plants and the list of ailments allowed are small. Now as the state prepares for it, it also has to answer questions around dispensing the drug and how to keep it in the right people's hands. We'll look at the big unanswered questions and what roadblocks still may be in the way.


  • Donna Schlachman: Democratic Representative from Exeter and prime sponsor of the medical marijuana bill.
  • Dr. Stuart Glassman: Rehabilitation Specialist at Granite Physiatry and Adjunct Assistant Professor at Dartmouth Medical School.

We'll also hear from:

  • Andrew Shagoury: Chief of the Tuftonboro Police Department
  • Susan Sharon: Reporter for Maine Public Radio
