In what looks like a direct political move to punish California, Jeff Sessions is making noises that Federal drug policy will be changed and prosecution of pot offenses in "state legal" states will be directed by prosecutors in those states. this has been leaked and pot stocks are getting slaughtered.

I've decided to ride it out, at least for the moment. There is a good chance the stocks will rebound like crazy, but right now the uncertainty is killing the entire sector, including some Canadians.

The bottom line is if state prosecutors are in charge, that's good...and if federal prosecutors in the affected states are in charge, that's bad.

I just sold all my pot stocks to lock in profits, which is still 100% or more overall. Lost a bit of gravy today, but I'm way ahead. I have one stock that's halted for a name change, and it's Canadian and probably won't be affected a whole lot. I'm more than 90% cash at the moment. I expect to buy back in right away, but the wording of Sessions announcement makes me think they'e going to crank up their civil forfeiture machine in Cali and Nevada. It may get really ugly for a while.

I see this as a direct political move to punish California for not voting for Shithead.

It’s not much of a leap, especially after a review of the “high points” of the #Trumptaxscam,  to realize that part of the authoritarian agenda is to politicize everything. It’s total war and immiseration for blue states.
Asset forfeiture is a sacrament to these fascists. Anything that makes our enemies suffer...

I reset the potfolio, based on what I consider increased risk around DOJ changes made last week.

I took 2/3 of my 190K investment and moved it completely out of my trading account back to my savings. I will use it to pay taxes on my trading wins (about 20K in tax liability for 2017) and then use about 50K to pay off some credit card debt I've foolishly allowed to accumulate over the past couple of years. (More than half of that is business expenses I put on plastic.) The rest will stay there for the time being. Not paying off the stead quite yet.

I still have a trading account with $67,600 in it (all but 20K is house money now). I will do the best I can to continue to trade pot stocks with that. If the rally continues, I will be back where I was within several months.

Best not to allow myself to be overexposed to a newly aggressive Jeff Sessions and his minions. Most pot stock investors are convinced nothing bad is going to happen. I tend to disagree. Hope I'm wrong and they're right.

I'm in mostly cash. The plan is to buy back the best Canadian companies, hopefully on a huge fear-based pullback. Those stocks are WAY overbought and cruising for a major correction anyway. The charts don't lie. I also will make a few day trades and swing trades. Not holding a a big bag of stocks right now because I don't want to be a bagholder if it goes south like it did about a year ago when Sessions and Spicer killed that rally.

No cryptos for me, except for a few pot stocks that have some tie-in. There are about 25 of those, I think. I have owned 2 of them. Not my long suit.

The houses are still my best investments. I'm not heavily leveraged. The pot stocks still might turn out to be quite good. This negative wave is probably a short term thing. I have enough money in play to still make enough to pay off the stead in a year if the overall rally keeps keeping on. In Canada it should. Hard to call the US right now.

Now I'm a lean mean trading machine. I really KNOW this subset of stocks. I think I'll be able to keep making money. I just wanted to take some off the table sooner because of the rescinding of the Cole memo. And because the Donald is onboard with it. I think it's a direct attack on California.

You just need to make your next big buy-in right before Sessions gets the You're FIRED call from The Donalditry.  If you can time that one right, you'll pay off the Toothstead AND your McMansion.  Timing is everything of course.

Also, try to win enough FRNs to buy this boat:

The Priceline of Pot and a Game Changer for the Marijuana Industry: How Smart Investors Are Seeing Green


..
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, there’s a good chance you’ve heard that the Marijuana Industry is undergoing explosive growth across the United States.

While support for federal legalization of marijuana continues to grow, a small group of legal marijuana companies are strategically positioning themselves to cash in on this fast-growing trend in a really big way.

“The Priceline of Pot” and a “Game Changer” for the Marijuana Industry: How Smart Investors Are Seeing Green

Many experts agree that Legalized Marijuana is quickly becoming the next big gold rush as it continues to spread like wildfire across the United States.

Needless to day, smart entrepreneurs are rushing to stake their claim in this promising new industry. The “Green Gold Rush” is quickly spawning numerous opportunities for growers, retailers, wholesalers, shippers, fertilizers, accessories, and of course the edibles. In other words, this is just the beginning!

Unfortunately, most investors know very little about legalized marijuana and because of this, they’re simply not prepared to capitalize on the opportunity to start a new business in this emerging industry. 

Luckily, there are a number of relatively easy ways the average investor can make impressive returns investing in the public markets. One good example is Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (OTC: LBUY).  This Denver, Colorado based company is a well-established industry leader, and is currently poised to profit from several, if not all areas of the booming legalized marijuana space.

Many people who got rich during the California Gold Rush of 1849, were not gold miners. Many savvy entrepreneurs became millionaires by building successful companies that provided prospectors and miners with important services and supplies.

In fact, California’s first millionaire was Sam Brannan, an ex-Mormon who hyped the Gold Rush in his newspaper, The California Star. He then profited from the Gold Rush by supplying miners—at extravagant prices—through his general stores in San Francisco and Sacramento. For a time, Brannan’s sales topped $5,000 a day. That’s the equivalent of $125,000 in today’s dollars.

Keep reading, and you’ll find more information on a savvy technology company may be uniquely positioned to profit from the marijuana boom, just like the entrepreneurs who got rich selling supplies during the Gold Rush back in the 1800s.

This company could very well be the best investment opportunity we’ve come across in years.

Not only has Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (OTC: LBUY) been called a “game-changer” by NBC, but it has also been referred to as the “The Priceline of Pot” by thestreet.com.

Why? Well, because LBUY has become the definitive online resource for finding legal cannabis deals and specials. The company’s website, Leafbuyer.com, helps connect millions of consumers with dispensaries and suppliers all over the USA.

Remember what Priceline.com did for the global travel industry? Well that’s what Leafbuyer.com could soon do for the thriving legal marijuana industry.

This is great news for investors, because LBUY is currently being traded on US stock exchanges, making it one of the very few, publicly-listed companies with solid growth and fundamentals available in the public markets.

Look at it this way. In a few years, the fast-growing legal cannabis arena could leave many investors reminiscing sadly over the ground-floor companies that got away, or it could leave them basking in the rewards of the lucrative opportunities they took advantage of.

Leafbuyer.com (OTC: LBUY)  is on the verge of being recognized by “The Street” which could blast the company’s stock into the stratosphere, in the near future!

In other words, smart investors may soon be embracing the ground-floor appeal of this new publicly traded company that’s being dubbed The “Priceline” of the legal cannabis industry.

How Leafbuyer.com is Disrupting the Marijuana Industry (OTC:LBUY)

In case you didn’t know, Leafbuyer.com has already grown into the largest cannabis deals network in the entire country, with 5 million users monthly. First launched in Colorado, LBUY is poised at the epicenter of the projected expansion of America’s legal marijuana industry. It has already saved active pot consumers over $5 million, and that number is growing exponentially. Following the 2016 election, the company is expanding into California, Florida, Nevada, Massachusetts, Arkansas, and North Dakota.

LBUY currently services over 250 of the 600 dispensaries in the Denver area and based on its 1st quarter numbers, LeafBuyer.com is fast approaching a one million dollar run rate. And that’s after targeting just one potential market.

Obviously,the company’s growth rate will accelerate as it expands into 28 new markets. Assuming LBUY can duplicate its proven business model in each state, it’s easy to see how this up and coming company could quickly become one of the marijuana industry’s the biggest, and most influential players.

Chances are, you are familiar with Groupon, a company that connects its subscribers with local merchants who offer a variety of deals. Well, during 2016 Groupon raked in a whopping $3.1 billion.

Groupon has done for the consumer coupon industry, what Priceline.com has done for the global travel industry. And that’s exactly what LBUY has the potential to do for the legal marijuana industry!

LeafBuyer’s national network of cannabis deals and information already reaches millions of consumers every month. It is also the official cannabis deals platform of TheCannabist.com (owned by The Denver Post) and WestWord.com.

The company is working with partners in each state, and plans to launch nationwide marketing initiative in the coming months. It goes without saying, as it opens new markets, Leafbuyer will scale operations as it offers an ever-growing selection of cannabis deals to more, and more consumers.

Cayla Shortley, Director of Sales at LeafBuyer is quoted as saying:

    “We are excited to expand our platform to new and growing markets across the country. We are now beyond the tipping point. Our success in Colorado can be attributed to a customer-centric focus and intense grassroots marketing.”

    “We have witnessed a strong demand for our online platform stemming from Colorado,” said Andre Leonard, Marketing Manager of Leafbuyer.com. “With the success we have had in the hub of the cannabis gold rush, it was an easy decision that our next step would be to scale operations nationally to these new markets.”

When you consider how big the legal marijuana market is projected to grow in the near future, it’s easy to see how LBUY is on its way to becoming a monster Cash Cow!

Yes, we’re currently witnessing the first stage of a cannabis GOLD RUSH!

The only question is… will you get in on the ground floor? Or will wait until everybody knows that cannabis stocks are a great investment?

There’s an old saying that goes like this, “when everybody knows it’s a good investment, it’s no longer a good investment”.

And that holds true now, more than ever. Smart investors know that timing is a critical factor when it comes to profit hunting. Everybody knows what they say about the early bird. That’s right. He’s the one who gets the worm, or in this case, the massive returns.

The dot.com era in the ’90s was responsible for turning Yahoo and eBay into the giant, multi-billion dollar companies they are today.Well, there’s another company that’s considered by far one of the most successful stories to come out of the ’90s dot.com boom. That company is Amazon.

All you have to do is watch the news to see that Amazon is on an absolute tear this year. Jeff Bezos and company recently acquired WholeFoods for 13.7 billion, and they’re fast on their way to becoming a $1 trillion-dollar juggernaut.

So How Big is the Legalized Marijuana Opportunity?

According to Forbes magazine, North American Marijuana sales grew by 30% to an astonishing 6.7 BILLION dollars.  They also estimate North American sales are projected to exceed 20 Billion dollars by 2021. That’s an annual compounded growth rate of 25%. In case you didn’t know, this growth rate is larger and faster than the dot-com era growth rate of 22%.

In other words, this represents one of the most exciting industries for investors that we have seen in more than a decade.

And if that’s not enough to grab your attention, you’ll be excited to know that in Canada, recently legalized recreational marijuana, promises to spark a brand new $22.6-billion industry. A new study also suggests that the Canadian pot industry will easily eclipse the sale of beer, wine, and spirits… all combined.

A soon-to-be-released Deloitte report entitled “Recreational Marijuana: Insights and Opportunities”, concluded that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s legalization of cannabis next year could add much needed fuel to Canada’s lagging economy.

Mark Whitmore, vice-chair of Deloitte, said in an interview on Wednesday (2).

    “There hasn’t been anything like this — and granted it wasn’t legislated — but you think of the dot-com … flurry,”

The November 2016 election in the United States was a turning point, when we saw four more states vote to legalize recreational marijuana. This brought the total number of recreational use states to eight.

At the time of this writing, there are a total of 29 states, along with the District of Columbia that allow legal use of medicinal marijuana. And a number of states have pending medical and recreational marijuana legislation in the works.

One of the biggest markets that will continue to have a huge impact on the legal recreational cannabis industry was the state of California, which boasts the 6th largest economy in the world.

Billions and billions of dollars could potentially be made from legal marijuana sales, in California alone.  That, in conjunction with the passage of marijuana laws in states like Florida, means that more than half of the American population will have legal access to medical or recreational cannabis.

In fact, Nevada is shooting to be the first state in the nation to legalize cannabis social clubs. Imagine watching dozens of social clubs for pot users popping up along on the Vegas Strip. Of course, other states will follow Nevada’s lead, especially if the clubs offer states another stream of tax revenue from the sale of legalized marijuana.

We can all agree that it doesn’t take a genius to see that cannabis is already on its way to becoming a huge industry serving a massive consumer market!

Millions of marijuana users across America could rely on Leafbuyer.com (OTC: LBUY) to get connected to the best deals at dispensaries in their local areas. Plus, a variety of businesses using the company’s website are already thriving, and watching their sales increase exponentially.

Widespread acceptance of marijuana has become a huge part of pop culture with celebrities like Morgan Freeman, Patrick Stewart, Snoop Dogg, and Rihanna to name a few, being openly candid about their love affair with weed.

On top of that, a recent CBS News poll from 2017 shows that support for legalizing marijuana is higher now than ever. It concluded that a whopping 61% of Americans think cannabis should be legalized. This is a 5% increase from last year, and the highest percentage that has ever been recorded in the poll. (5)

The bottom line? A staggering 88% of Americans are openly in favor of marijuana use for medical or recreational purposes. That’s almost 9 out of 1o adults!

Colorado was the first state to legalize recreational marijuana, and while the naysayers said the initiative would never be a success, the numbers have proven them wrong, year after year. In just 10 months, the state saw 1 billion dollars in legal cannabis sales during 2016. (7)

According to the Tax Foundation, nationwide legalization of marijuana could generate up to $28 billion in additional tax revenues for federal, state, and local governments. (8). Needless to say, this is a great reason for bureaucrats to lend their support to the legalization of pot in their respective states.

Analysts at Cowen and Co. estimate the cannabis sector could be worth $50 billion by 2026 if you include black market sales entering the legal market. (9)

The fast-growing cannabis industry has helped many reluctant state legislators recognize the economic benefit of legalizing marijuana, and the taxes could reel in significant revenue for their state.

It’s simple logic. As more and more states legalize marijuana, more and more marijuana users will use Leafbuyer.com to find the best deals! (OTC: LBUY)

Below you’ll see the market cap on some marijuana stocks dominating the market right now, and how they’ve performed in the past year. (Figures are as of March 17th, 2017)

GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH): $3.0 billion, up 64%

Canopy Growth Corp. (NASDAQOTH: TWMJF): $904 million, up 259%

Aphria (NASDAQOTH: APHQF) $440 million, up 381%

Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH: ACBFF): $482 million, up 299%

AXIM Biotechnologies (NASDAQOTH: AXIM): $562 million, up 1,720%

Corbus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CRBP): $450 million, up 431%

Medical Marijuana (NASDAQOTH: MJNA): $221 million, up 254%

While many of these stocks look maxed out, LBUY is just getting warmed up. And with the nationwide expansion of legalized Marijuana, Leafbuyer is perfectly poised to profit from an inevitable growth in revenue.

Although the legal cannabis boom is still in its infancy, it’s quickly becoming mainstream. Shares of LBUY could be ready to take off as more traders uncover what could be the first “Green Gold Rush” in American stock market history!

The legal pot is very expensive, but it's very good and lab tested for pesticides etc. I think it's like $80-100 per quarter oz. Here on the black market it's more like $120.

This is for high quality flower, which seems to be what's available. I suspect mostly we get Colorado pot that's smuggled here in fairly small quantities by people who buy it ILLEGALLY from someone in a legal state, avoiding taxes, etc.

Not only has Leafbuyer Technologies, Inc. (OTC: LBUY) been called a “game-changer” by NBC, but it has also been referred to as the “The Priceline of Pot” by thestreet.com.

Why? Well, because LBUY has become the definitive online resource for finding legal cannabis deals and specials. The company’s website, Leafbuyer.com, helps connect millions of consumers with dispensaries and suppliers all over the USA.

Remember what Priceline.com did for the global travel industry? Well that’s what Leafbuyer.com could soon do for the thriving legal marijuana industry.

This is great news for investors, because LBUY is currently being traded on US stock exchanges, making it one of the very few, publicly-listed companies with solid growth and fundamentals available in the public markets.

Look at it this way. In a few years, the fast-growing legal cannabis arena could leave many investors reminiscing sadly over the ground-floor companies that got away, or it could leave them basking in the rewards of the lucrative opportunities they took advantage of.

Leafbuyer.com (OTC: LBUY)  is on the verge of being recognized by “The Street” which could blast the company’s stock into the stratosphere, in the near future!

In other words, smart investors may soon be embracing the ground-floor appeal of this new publicly traded company that’s being dubbed The “Priceline” of the legal cannabis industry.

How Leafbuyer.com is Disrupting the Marijuana Industry (OTC:LBUY)

In case you didn’t know, Leafbuyer.com has already grown into the largest cannabis deals network in the entire country, with 5 million users monthly. First launched in Colorado, LBUY is poised at the epicenter of the projected expansion of America’s legal marijuana industry. It has already saved active pot consumers over $5 million, and that number is growing exponentially. Following the 2016 election, the company is expanding into California, Florida, Nevada, Massachusetts, Arkansas, and North Dakota.

LBUY currently services over 250 of the 600 dispensaries in the Denver area and based on its 1st quarter numbers, LeafBuyer.com is fast approaching a one million dollar run rate. And that’s after targeting just one potential market.

Obviously,the company’s growth rate will accelerate as it expands into 28 new markets. Assuming LBUY can duplicate its proven business model in each state, it’s easy to see how this up and coming company could quickly become one of the marijuana industry’s the biggest, and most influential players.

Chances are, you are familiar with Groupon, a company that connects its subscribers with local merchants who offer a variety of deals. Well, during 2016 Groupon raked in a whopping $3.1 billion.

Groupon has done for the consumer coupon industry, what Priceline.com has done for the global travel industry. And that’s exactly what LBUY has the potential to do for the legal marijuana industry!

LeafBuyer’s national network of cannabis deals and information already reaches millions of consumers every month. It is also the official cannabis deals platform of TheCannabist.com (owned by The Denver Post) and WestWord.com.

The company is working with partners in each state, and plans to launch nationwide marketing initiative in the coming months. It goes without saying, as it opens new markets, Leafbuyer will scale operations as it offers an ever-growing selection of cannabis deals to more, and more consumers.

Cayla Shortley, Director of Sales at LeafBuyer is quoted as saying:

    “We are excited to expand our platform to new and growing markets across the country. We are now beyond the tipping point. Our success in Colorado can be attributed to a customer-centric focus and intense grassroots marketing.”

    “We have witnessed a strong demand for our online platform stemming from Colorado,” said Andre Leonard, Marketing Manager of Leafbuyer.com. “With the success we have had in the hub of the cannabis gold rush, it was an easy decision that our next step would be to scale operations nationally to these new markets.”

When you consider how big the legal marijuana market is projected to grow in the near future, it’s easy to see how LBUY is on its way to becoming a monster Cash Cow!

Yes, we’re currently witnessing the first stage of a cannabis GOLD RUSH!

The only question is… will you get in on the ground floor? Or will wait until everybody knows that cannabis stocks are a great investment?

There’s an old saying that goes like this, “when everybody knows it’s a good investment, it’s no longer a good investment”.

And that holds true now, more than ever. Smart investors know that timing is a critical factor when it comes to profit hunting. Everybody knows what they say about the early bird. That’s right. He’s the one who gets the worm, or in this case, the massive returns.

The dot.com era in the ’90s was responsible for turning Yahoo and eBay into the giant, multi-billion dollar companies they are today.Well, there’s another company that’s considered by far one of the most successful stories to come out of the ’90s dot.com boom. That company is Amazon.

All you have to do is watch the news to see that Amazon is on an absolute tear this year. Jeff Bezos and company recently acquired WholeFoods for 13.7 billion, and they’re fast on their way to becoming a $1 trillion-dollar juggernaut.

So How Big is the Legalized Marijuana Opportunity?

According to Forbes magazine, North American Marijuana sales grew by 30% to an astonishing 6.7 BILLION dollars.  They also estimate North American sales are projected to exceed 20 Billion dollars by 2021. That’s an annual compounded growth rate of 25%. In case you didn’t know, this growth rate is larger and faster than the dot-com era growth rate of 22%.

In other words, this represents one of the most exciting industries for investors that we have seen in more than a decade.

And if that’s not enough to grab your attention, you’ll be excited to know that in Canada, recently legalized recreational marijuana, promises to spark a brand new $22.6-billion industry. A new study also suggests that the Canadian pot industry will easily eclipse the sale of beer, wine, and spirits… all combined.

A soon-to-be-released Deloitte report entitled “Recreational Marijuana: Insights and Opportunities”, concluded that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s legalization of cannabis next year could add much needed fuel to Canada’s lagging economy.

Mark Whitmore, vice-chair of Deloitte, said in an interview on Wednesday (2).

    “There hasn’t been anything like this — and granted it wasn’t legislated — but you think of the dot-com … flurry,”

The November 2016 election in the United States was a turning point, when we saw four more states vote to legalize recreational marijuana. This brought the total number of recreational use states to eight.

At the time of this writing, there are a total of 29 states, along with the District of Columbia that allow legal use of medicinal marijuana. And a number of states have pending medical and recreational marijuana legislation in the works.

One of the biggest markets that will continue to have a huge impact on the legal recreational cannabis industry was the state of California, which boasts the 6th largest economy in the world.

Billions and billions of dollars could potentially be made from legal marijuana sales, in California alone.  That, in conjunction with the passage of marijuana laws in states like Florida, means that more than half of the American population will have legal access to medical or recreational cannabis.

In fact, Nevada is shooting to be the first state in the nation to legalize cannabis social clubs. Imagine watching dozens of social clubs for pot users popping up along on the Vegas Strip. Of course, other states will follow Nevada’s lead, especially if the clubs offer states another stream of tax revenue from the sale of legalized marijuana.

We can all agree that it doesn’t take a genius to see that cannabis is already on its way to becoming a huge industry serving a massive consumer market!

Millions of marijuana users across America could rely on Leafbuyer.com (OTC: LBUY) to get connected to the best deals at dispensaries in their local areas. Plus, a variety of businesses using the company’s website are already thriving, and watching their sales increase exponentially.

Widespread acceptance of marijuana has become a huge part of pop culture with celebrities like Morgan Freeman, Patrick Stewart, Snoop Dogg, and Rihanna to name a few, being openly candid about their love affair with weed.

On top of that, a recent CBS News poll from 2017 shows that support for legalizing marijuana is higher now than ever. It concluded that a whopping 61% of Americans think cannabis should be legalized. This is a 5% increase from last year, and the highest percentage that has ever been recorded in the poll. (5)

The bottom line? A staggering 88% of Americans are openly in favor of marijuana use for medical or recreational purposes. That’s almost 9 out of 1o adults!

Colorado was the first state to legalize recreational marijuana, and while the naysayers said the initiative would never be a success, the numbers have proven them wrong, year after year. In just 10 months, the state saw 1 billion dollars in legal cannabis sales during 2016. (7)

According to the Tax Foundation, nationwide legalization of marijuana could generate up to $28 billion in additional tax revenues for federal, state, and local governments. (8). Needless to say, this is a great reason for bureaucrats to lend their support to the legalization of pot in their respective states.

Analysts at Cowen and Co. estimate the cannabis sector could be worth $50 billion by 2026 if you include black market sales entering the legal market. (9)

The fast-growing cannabis industry has helped many reluctant state legislators recognize the economic benefit of legalizing marijuana, and the taxes could reel in significant revenue for their state.

It’s simple logic. As more and more states legalize marijuana, more and more marijuana users will use Leafbuyer.com to find the best deals! (OTC: LBUY)

Below you’ll see the market cap on some marijuana stocks dominating the market right now, and how they’ve performed in the past year. (Figures are as of March 17th, 2017)

GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH): $3.0 billion, up 64%

Canopy Growth Corp. (NASDAQOTH: TWMJF): $904 million, up 259%

Aphria (NASDAQOTH: APHQF) $440 million, up 381%

Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH: ACBFF): $482 million, up 299%

AXIM Biotechnologies (NASDAQOTH: AXIM): $562 million, up 1,720%

Corbus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: CRBP): $450 million, up 431%

Medical Marijuana (NASDAQOTH: MJNA): $221 million, up 254%

While many of these stocks look maxed out, LBUY is just getting warmed up. And with the nationwide expansion of legalized Marijuana, Leafbuyer is perfectly poised to profit from an inevitable growth in revenue.

Although the legal cannabis boom is still in its infancy, it’s quickly becoming mainstream. Shares of LBUY could be ready to take off as more traders uncover what could be the first “Green Gold Rush” in American stock market history!

New Hampshire House Approves Marijuana Legalization Bill  ;D

 Jan 09, 2018  Chris Sununu, cultivation, Gilford, Glen Aldrich, HB 656, New Hampshire, NH, possession

The New Hampshire House of Representatives approved a bill to make marijuana legal for adults on Tuesday by a vote of 207-139. The bill will now move to the House Ways and Means Committee before moving on to the Senate.

HB 656, which was introduced last session by Rep. Glen Aldrich (R-Gilford), would make possession of three-quarters of an ounce of marijuana legal for adults aged 21 and older. Home cultivation of up to three mature and three immature plants would be legal for adults as well.

Last year, the New Hampshire Legislature voted overwhelmingly to replace criminal penalties for simple marijuana possession with civil penalties. Gov. Chris Sununu (R) signed the bill into law.
