Dozens of people from across NH came to the cannabis decrim/legalization hearings and spoke out in the criminal justice committee this afternoon at the state house in Concord. The Union Leader has a story about it here. (Al Capone was me, by the way.)
Here’s what Sarah from the NH Teapot Party had to say about the event:
So, in my opinion this was THE BEST hearing I have ever attended in regards to cannabis! I have sat through many hearings and watched the committee members falling asleep or rolling their eyes as the constituents talked, but sit upright and fully alert when law enforcement had their turn. It was always frustrating and infuriating. Today was almost the exact opposite!!!! What a GREAT afternoon!!! Not only were many of the committee members smiling and nodding at the testimony of those in favor, they were asking good questions. The opposition had their canned rehearsed testimony and were for the most part unable to answer questions.
