New Hampshire Governor Really Doesn't Like Pot

In 2008, the New Hampshire House approved a measure to bring the possession of up to a quarter ounce of marijuana down from a misdemeanor to a simple $200 fine. The bill died in the state Senate, when the Governor said he'd veto the legislation because he felt it sent the wrong message to youth.

In 2009, both houses approved medical marijuana and the regulations governing dispensaries, which Gov. John Lynch promptly vetoed because of his perceived potential for abuse.

On Wednesday, the state House once again approved the 2008 decriminalization measure, though this time, they limited it to adults and required anyone under 18 caught in possession to complete community service and take a drug awareness class.

Once again, the Governor has promised a veto.
