Governor Chris Sununu (R-NH) signed a bill on Friday, expanding the list of providers allowed to prescribe medical marijuana in New Hampshire. Under the bill, a licensed physician assistant, who possesses an active registration from the United States Drug Enforcement Administration to prescribe controlled substances, and who receives the express consent of a supervising physician, will be able to prescribe cannabis for therapeutic purposes. The legislation is slated to go into effect 60 days after its passage.
Another bill, which would allow medical marijuana users to grow their own cannabis at home also awaits the Governor’s signature.
