New Hampshire has recently added post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain to the list of conditions that qualify for the state’s medical cannabis program. The new regulations are likely to cause a significant growth in the state’s MMJ industry.
Chris Sununu, the governor of New Hampshire, has signed House Bill 160 expanding the MMJ list with two new ailments, according to Foster’s Daily Democrat.
In January, the state’s health department issued a report describing the operation of New Hampshire’s four dispensaries. The numbers demonstrated that the businesses had faced a tough start since opening last year. During their first few months of operation, the four dispensaries combined received less than $1 million in sales, as opposed to a whopping $10 million they spent to open.
Adding new qualifying conditions is likely to increase medical weed sales. The new rules go into effect at the end of August, according to the Lawrence Eagle Tribune.
