UPDATED — InDepthNH.org’s Roger Wood interviews Matt Simon, the head of the Marijuana Policy Project, about Tuesday morning’s vote 207 to 139 to legalize recreational use of marijuana in New Hampshire. The New Hampshire House leadership unexpectedly referred HB 656 to the House Ways & Means Committee after it passed the House floor. Therefore, the bill will not advance to the Senate until the House Ways & Means Committee either decides not to hear the bill (which seems possible since the bill no longer includes regulations or taxes) or until after it has been heard by the committee and receives a second floor vote.
