New Hampshire became the 19th state in the country and the last of the New England states to adopt a Medical Marijuana Program. It will allow patients with qualifying medical conditions to register with the state and possess up to two ounces of marijuana at a time. The department will register four non-profit alternative treatment centers (ATCs) to grow and sell marijuana to patients. Patients could also designate a caregiver to pick up their medicine for them, but neither patients nor caregivers may cultivate marijuana under any circumstances. The ATCs are expected to start opening in 2015.
