MPP - Medical Marijuana Advisory Council to Hold Public Meeting

New Hampshire’s Therapeutic Use of Cannabis Advisory Council to Hold Public Meeting and Discuss Draft Program Rules at 1 p.m. ET

                                                                    

Draft rules proposed by the Department of Health and Human Services and a controversial memo from the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office will be introduced and discussed by council members

CONCORD — The Therapeutic Use of Cannabis Advisory Council, which was created to oversee New Hampshire’s medical marijuana program, will meet at 1:00 p.m. Friday in Rooms 205-207 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord.

Members of the council, which is chaired by Rep. James MacKay (D-Concord), have already received a first draft of rules from the Department of Health and Human Services.  They have also been provided with a controversial advisory memo from the attorney general’s office that would — if followed by the department — cause an additional lengthy delay for patients who are seeking legal protection.

Council members are expected to accept comment from members of the public. Matt Simon, Goffstown-based New England Political Director for the Marijuana Policy Project, will be present to comment on the draft rules and the attorney general’s opinion.
