New Hampshire appeals medical marijuana ruling to state Supreme Court. The New Hampshire Attorney General’s office is appealing a November court ruling that opened the door for state residents to obtain therapeutic cannabis in other states.

The ruling allowed qualified patients waiting for the state’s alternative treatment centers to open this spring to receive ID cards, which can be used at dispensaries in other states to buy therapeutic cannabis. The attorney general’s office is seeking clarity from the Supreme Court to determine whether patients will still be allowed to travel out of state once New Hampshire dispensaries open.
