Van Wickler expressed disappointment that New Hampshire didn’t act when he testified for marijuana law reform a couple of years ago.

“My hope at the time was New Hampshire would have been responsible enough and had the courage to be one of the first to do this,” he said.

Van Wickler maintains current drug policy is what allows drug dealers to flourish in neighborhoods today.

“When will New Hampshire get it? I don’t know that they will,” Van Wickler said.

Hassan earlier this year signed into law a bill allowing doctors to prescribe marijuana for medical reasons, but insisted on strict regulation.

The medical marijuana law allows the state to approve up to four dispensaries, but the process is expected to take at least 18 months.
