Yesterday the full house voted 221-96 to pass HB442, which would establish medicinal cannabis dispensaries in the state of New Hampshire. The conservatively written bill was met with opposition from law enforcement and the Attorney General’s office, but found support from legislators and senators on both sides of the aisle as well as patients who have benefitted from medicinal cannabis.
For two mornings prior to the vote by the full house on HB442, a small group of supporters greeted legislators as they entered the state house, holding signs in support of the rights of patients.
Bill’s coverage includes video footage of the entire testimony:

Possibly the most powerful testimony of the day came from Clayton Holton, as filmed by Biker Bill:
