Can New Hampshire Residents Purchase Weed in MA?
NH residents are absolutely legally allowed to travel to Massachusetts to purchase weed from a licensed adult-use dispensary. You are not legally allowed to purchase cannabis in MA and take it back home to NH because this would be transporting cannabis across state lines. Doing so is currently against the law. Therefore, be sure to make arrangements to stay in MA after your purchase until you have consumed your purchased products.
Is Weed Legal in NH?
NH legalized medical cannabis in 2013 and began selling medical cannabis in 2016. However, as of 2022, NH is the only remaining state in the New England area that has not yet legalized cannabis for recreational use.
To make matters even more restrictive, possessing cannabis in NH if you are not a medical patient is still illegal, even though the state has taken steps to try to decriminalize passing cannabis in a small amount. It is still possible to face fines for possessing as little as 3/4 of an ounce or less.
Thankfully, there are no laws against traveling to surrounding MA dispensaries to purchase cannabis. For example, you can plan a trip to Uma Flowers in Pepperell, MA to purchase adult-use cannabis, which is right across the state line.
Are There Cannabis Dispensaries in NH?
Currently, there are three medical dispensary brands in the state, all of which offer more than one location. Dispensaries in NH are referred to as Alternative Treatment Centers (ATCs). The medical dispensaries in NH include:
- Prime Alternative Treatment Centers of NH in Chichester and Merrimack
- Temescal Wellness in Keene, Diver, and Lebanon
- Sanctuary ATC in Conway and Plymouth
NH has been extremely conservative when issuing licenses for new medical dispensaries. The state bases the decision to open new locations on the demand for cannabis in certain areas. Also, when a patient is granted a medical marijuana license in NH, they must register to shop at a “preferred ATC” dispensary only. In the event patients want to make a change to a different ATC, they have to submit a request.
