Three bills aimed at easing the state's marijuana laws went before the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee on Thursday.
According to the Union Leader, one bill would legalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana, another would make possession of an ounce or less a civil violation, and the third would take marijuana off the state's list of illegal drugs.
The New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police and the state's Bureau of Drug and Alcohol Services spoke out against decriminalizing marijuana, while many residents spoke out in favor of the proposed bills.
