CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A group studying marijuana legalization in New Hampshire recommended the creation of a Cannabis Commission to regulate it, similar to the state’s Liquor Commission’s governmental organization.

The Commission to Study the Legalization, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana released a report Nov. 1, 2018, with 54 recommendations should legislators pursue marijuana legalization.

New Hampshire Public Radio reported that the recommended Cannabis Commission would be charged with licensing and enforcement, with four distinct contracts: cultivation, manufacturing, retail, and testing.

The group estimated marijuana legalization could bring in a broad range of revenue, anywhere from $15.3 million to $57.8 million, not including licensing fees. The report said it is likely the revenue will come in near the midpoint of $36.6 million once the market stabilizes and in time possibly reaching about $47 million.

  1. Everyone realizes that when New Hampshire or New York or New Jersey keep Cannabis prohibitionist Statutes for much longer, then the State will experience an out migration of productive citizens and their financial resources to neighboring northeastern States where full legalization is already enhancing good health and unity and prosperity. Add this to the fact that a prohibitionist state gov. would continue to waste money for unjust enforcement and also lose a Lot of potential tax revenue. Good result all around when the States legalize [full adult use] by 2019.
