This is possible but it is speculation and not fact

Thank you. Reddit seems to be 100% convinced of this, but no official has ever even hinted at it afaik. I'll admit it seems very plausible, but let's not rule out general ignorance.

Both make sense really. Ignorance and the monopoly thing. Especially when you look at how adamant a lot of our state gov seems to be about home cultivation. Do I believe that they actually believe the hippie guy with 6 plants in his basement could be the next El Chapo? Yes. Do I believe that they don’t want people to grow because it might hinder their state income? Yes. We need people who are more with the current world in our government

it is apparently a talking point intended to excuse the moralistic bullshit that is the GOP these days.

The most recent bill has the liquor commission incharge of regulating cultivation and retail sales.

Right, but the talking point is that it can’t be legalized until the feds legalize it because ‘they’ have to make it sold only through state liquor stores because ‘reasons’.

I'm not alone in this opinion but there is no universe where weed isn't sold like liquor in NH.

Like that darned Maggie Hassan!

I agree that her cautious centrism is awful, and she did in fact veto pot. So what about Hassan when Sununu is slammed is a fair criticism. But the ‘can’t legalize because liquor stores’ is just made up nonsense.
