New Hampshire Loosens Penalties For Marijuana Possession

New Hampshire has joined 21 other states in relaxing penalties for minor marijuana possession charges. Previous first-time penalties for possession of up to three quarters of an ounce included up to a year in jail and up to $2,000 in fines. In September, that will change: possession of up to three quarters of an ounce will be considered a civil violation instead of a misdemeanor, and will cost $100 for first and second charges for people over the age of 18. Third charges will result in up to $300 in fines. Those under the age of 18 in possession of up to three quarters of an ounce of marijuana will face a delinquency petition.
