Would sign bill decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana
Marchand repeatedly pushed for legalized marijuana, a measure he said would raise revenue for a state that needs new money to pay for expanded programs. Not only that, he believes both opponents agree but refuse to admit it.
Van Ostern and Connolly called for decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana, with Connolly saying he would sign such a measure as governor.

Combat opioid epidemic with drug court & access to treatment
Today the New Hampshire legislature voted to create a Task Force to study measures to be taken to combat the opioid epidemic, and will review a set of common sense proposals from Governor Hassan, who
I applaud for being a national leader on this issue.
I strongly encourage the Task Force to approve Governor Hassan's full package of recommendations, which address key objectives like improving access to treatment, providing
law enforcement with new tools and resources, and establishing drug courts that have proven instrumental in helping to fight this scourge.
Every day we delay another life is lost, a family is destroyed, and a community is sent into mourning. We must act now.
