In 2016, New Hampshire established a Therapeutic Cannabis Program, that allows Granite Staters with a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, PTSD, and epilepsy, to buy medicinal marijuana. Caregivers and physicians can also qualify for the program, with appropriate documentation. Those who qualify are required to buy the drug through one of the state’s four “Alternative Treatment Centers.”
Growth of New Hampshire’s therapeutic cannabis program has doubled, or more, in every qualifying demographic since the program began.
Qualifying Patients: 2,089 used the program in 2016, 8,566 participated in 2019
Designated Caregivers: 129 used the program in 2016, 488 participated in 2019
Certifying Providers: 560 used the program in 2016, 1,101 in 2019
