New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu signed 30 bills into law Aug. 10, including one that would allow doctors to recommend medical cannabis for patients with opioid use disorder.

House Bill 605 also allows out-of-state patients to access medical cannabis in New Hampshire, as long as they are qualified medical cannabis patients in another state.

The new law takes effect in October, and the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services will be responsible for adopting rules regarding how dispensaries can verify out-of-state patients’ credentials.
