A recent move in New Hampshire could make it easier for patients to receive medical cannabis recommendations and, thus, boost medical marijuana sales in the state.

Physician assistants soon will be able to recommend MMJ in New Hampshire as Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill expanding the list of providers who may do so.

The state won’t be legalizing recreational use of marijuana any time soon, however.

The House passed a bill legalizing recreational use in April, but the Senate later voted to delay action on the measure.

Other bills that would expand the qualifying conditions for medical use also were retained in committee.
