Reforming New Hampshire’s Drug Laws: State Rep Renny Cushing Speaks at Exeter Inn on Wednesday, June 28, 7:00 pm
Exeter – With the neighboring states of Maine and Massachusetts having voted last November to legalize the sale and use of recreational marijuana, is it time for New Hampshire to do likewise? How is the Granite State’s medical marijuana program working out? How does all this relate to the criminal justice system?
To answer these questions and more, the Rockingham County Democrats are sponsoring a talk by Renny Cushing this Wednesday, June 28, at 7:00 pm at the Exeter Inn (Daniel Webster Room), 90 Front Street, Exeter, NH.
Renny is a State Representative from Hampton who has been active in state politics for many years. He was the prime sponsor of legislation decriminalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuana, legislation that has passed the Legislature and is on the way to Governor Sununu’s desk. He recently introduced a bill to establish a commission to study the legalization, regulation and taxation of marijuana for adult use.
“I can’t think of anyone better to talk about this issue,” commented Larry Drake, Chair of the Rockingham County Democrats. “Renny is a long-time leader in this and many other areas. I encourage everyone who wants our state to adopt a more enlightened approach to drugs to turn out Wednesday evening,” Drake continued.
A question-and-answer session will follow Rep Cushing’s remarks.
The event is free and open to the public.
