N.H. lawmakers reach deal on marijuana bills

CONCORD, N.H. — Negotiators in the New Hampshire House and Senate reached a deal on a medical marijuana bill Tuesday, positioning the state to join more than a dozen others in legalizing the drug for seriously ill patients.

Both chambers had previously passed the bill, but the Senate version eliminated a House-proposed option for patients to grow the drug at home, as well as to obtain it at a dispensary, and Governor Maggie Hassan, a Democrat, said she would not sign the bill if the home-grow provision remained.
