NH man shares story about how medical marijuana has helped him

Recently on this blog, we've reported on the efforts made by New Hampshire lawmakers to establish a medical marijuana program in the Granite State, noting that the House voted 286-64 in support of such a bill. Whether or not it passes through the Senate is yet to be determined, but in the meantime, some citizens have taken it upon themselves to voice their opinions about using the drug for medicinal purposes.

One of these individuals is Ron Mitchell, a U.S. Army combat veteran whose article was published in the Union Leader on April 22. Mitchell explained that he and his wife, who call Manchester their home, have been residing in Vermont for the past few years so that he can legally treat a severe back injury with marijuana.

He noted that a well-respected doctor originally suggested that he try the plant, and when he did, he was pleasantly surprised to find that it allowed him to achieve a level of comfort and and relief that drastically improved his quality of life.

Mitchell stated that he wants to move back to Manchester, but if the bill doesn't pass, he won't be able to without putting his health at risk.

"My wife needs to return home to New Hampshire this summer, with or without me, to care for her parents," writes Mitchell. "I would very much like to join her in moving home, but that decision will depend on what happens with HB 573. New Hampshire should not make criminals of patients who want to grow their own limited supply of plants."

It will be interesting to see how this bill progresses in the coming months. In the meantime, if you have been accused of any crime involving marijuana, be sure you have the best legal team on your side of the courtroom. Working with an experienced New Hampshire lawyer can ensure that you don't unnecessarily suffer under the strict marijuana laws the state currently has in place.
