The AG released a list of four names of representatives that former state Rep. Kyle Tasker sold drugs to and another person who smoked marijuana with him - but said no charges will be filed.

The AG's office said Shem Kellogg, of Plaistow; Joseph Lachance, of Manchester; Pamela Tucker, of Greenland; and Ted Wright, of Sanbornville, communicated with Tasker about drug transactions, made a payment to him via an online application, or both. They also said Amanda Bouldin, of Manchester, smoked marijuana with Tasker.

The Attorney General said they conducted interviews with everyone except Kellogg, who died in June after a battle with cancer.

None of the knew much about Tasker’s illicit drug business, according to the AG's office, and the three who admitted to buying in the report said they only bought marijuana for medicinal purposes for someone because they could not get it legally.

CORRECTION: A previous report could be interpreted to mean that Bouldin had purchased drugs from Tasker. Bouldin did not buy drugs from Tasker. She used marijuana with him in his car.
