The New Hampshire House voted in 2020 to add insomnia and opioid use disorder to the list of qualifying conditions, though the latter would carry significant restrictions. 

The passing of House Bill 573, on May 23, 2013, authorized the use of therapeutic cannabis in the state of New Hampshire. It also establishes a medical marijuana card registry system and allows for the registration of up to four non-profit alternative treatment centers in the state, and establishes an affirmative defense for qualified patients and designated caregivers with valid registry identification medical marijuana cards.

Unfortunately, it may potentially take up to two years before any of the four alternative treatment centers begin serving New Hampshire’s medical marijuana patients. Please note that these time approximations are only estimated and are not declared by state lawmakers or New Hampshire’s governing body. This is an approximation of time that states typically take to implement a properly functioning medical marijuana program.

A valid medical marijuana card from another medical marijuana state will also be recognized by New Hampshire law, allowing the visiting patient to possess cannabis for therapeutic purposes, but the “visiting qualifying patient shall not cultivate or purchase cannabis in New Hampshire or obtain cannabis from alternative treatment centers…”

On Monday, December 28, 2015, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services began issuing Registry Identification Cards to approved qualifying patients and designated caregivers, by mail. A New Hampshire medical marijuana card is a form of personal identification that is issued by the DHSS to a qualifying patient, personal caregiver, or dispensary agent.

The New Hampshire medical marijuana card shall verify that a medical practitioner has provided a written certification to the qualifying patient, that the patient has designated the individual as a personal caregiver, or that a medical treatment center has met the terms of law. The New Hampshire medical marijuana card shall also serve to identify individuals that are exempt from New Hampshire criminal and civil penalties for conduct pursuant to the medical use of marijuana, for the DHSS and law enforcement.
