This year's conversation about legalizing marijuana ended in the State House on Thursday - at least for now.
Legalizing pot is not so farfetched given New Hampshire's notorious libertarian streak, but the heroin and fentanyl epidemic has changed all that.
Today lawmakers once again said no.
"This is not the New Hampshire way to come out and say yes, use this federally-illegal drug while we're trying to stop the use of opioids," said Whitefield state Rep. John Tholl.
A better test will come when the House considers a bill that would end jail time for possession of up to half an ounce of marijuana. The House has approved this five times in the past only to have it die in the Senate.
