Live Free or Get High

It's a little to the east of Hometown, but just gotta give a thumb's up to the legislature in New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire House of Representatives became the first U.S. legislative body to vote in favor of legalizing marijuana for recreational use. The measure passed a preliminary vote by 170-162 on Wednesday; it now heads to committee and then goes back to the House floor for a final vote before heading to the state Senate. 

The bad news is:

The state Senate, however, has a conservative record on marijuana legislation votes: Last year, it rejected a bill that sought to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana, the fourth time it has done so in the past five years.

What's more, New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan, a Democrat, told local ABC affiliate WMUR-TV on Monday that she would veto the recreational marijuana bill if it ever reached her desk.

You're definitely a buzzkill, Maggie. You're just like your ma and pa.

  2. Joe, hope your investments are doing well. Having an all pot state Super bowl has gotta help. Here's a site for you. Don't know anything about it. Might be good.
