Any increase in the I-93 tax should be only IF absolutely necessary well publicised. With the economy now in trouble, efforts should be made to keep and increase as minimal as possible so as to have least impact on especially NH families and smaller businesses. I fear that an increase in gambling within NH will only impact on NH families at a time when US families in general are struggling for stability, both financial and social.
This depends on what is defined as 'small amounts'.
As a retired MD, I know of no medical or 'health' problem that truly 'needs' marijuana for its treatment. Our struggles with alcohol use by drivers and addicted family members is destructive to the NH family as it is to many families around the globe. "Medicinal marijuana" will only add to those tragic problems at great cost to NH families and NH society as a whole.
When it is dangerous to NH neighbors and by noise, very unsettling, it should be limited.
I don't know enough about it as yet to give a strong answer either way.
When the USG fails to follow its own laws, a State must take the law within its own area of responsibility if its citizens are to be protected apropos finances, crime and the spread of imported diseases.
