A WMUR Granite State Poll released Tuesday found that a majority of New Hampshire residents support making marijuana legal for adults:

New Hampshire legalized marijuana for medical purposes in 2013, but bills to legalize marijuana for recreational use have not passed the legislature. However, a majority of Granite Statersgspfinal2 support legalizing recreational marijuana in New Hampshire and have for several years. Currently, 62% support legalizing marijuana for recreational use (41% strongly and 21% somewhat), 30% oppose (19% strongly and 11% somewhat) and 8% are neutral or unsure.
If marijuana were legalized in the Granite State, a majority of New Hampshire residents (72%) approve of selling it at licensed retail outlets and taxing it, similar to how alcohol is sold (52% strongly and 20% somewhat), only 24% disapprove of this idea (18% strongly and 6% somewhat), 1% are neutral and 3% are unsure.
The full poll can be found here.
In 2015, a bill that would have significantly reduced penalties for marijuana possession passed the House by a huge 297-67 margin. Unfortunately, the bill was tabled at the end of the legislative session. Supporters are hoping that a similar bill can be passed this year after the House killed legislation that would have regulated marijuana like alcohol in February.
