New Hampshire Governor Decriminalizes Marijuana Because '[Kids] Try Things'

Gov. Chris Sununu has signed into law a bill eliminating criminal penalties for possession of three-quarters of an ounce or less of marijuana.

It was one of 28 bills the Republican signed Tuesday, his office said in a news release.

House Bill 640 was passed by the Senate in a bipartisan 17-6 vote in May; it sailed through the House, 318-36, on March 8.

At the time, Sununu said he would sign the measure into law, calling it "common sense marijuana reform."

Sen. Jeb Bradley, R-Wolfeboro, worked with stakeholders to engineer a compromise which he fought to protect against amendments proposed by decriminalization opponent Sen. Bill Gannon, R-Sandown.

"The reason I am supporting this bill is personal," Bradley said in May. "A lot of us have kids. I do. Every parent knows kids are what we used to be when we were kids. They try things. I don't want my kids facing one strike and you are out, because I've been there."

Good. It's a plant God made.

Probably for a reason. Maybe we should be trying to figure out the reason instead of watching Reefer Madness reruns.

Sununu is a Republican. You people can't even read and comprehend a simple sentence. Little wonder why this area will never get better.
