We are looking forward to another great Memorial Day Weekend Sale next week. The sale will take place next Thursday, May 26, to Saturday, May 28 (while supplies last). Details will be announced on Wednesday, May 25. Mark your calendars and stay tuned!
Also, please note that we will be closed on Monday, May 30. Both dispensaries will reopen on Tuesday, May 31.
A Caribbean vacation might sound appealing, but Prime’s new tropical fruit chews are a much more convenient alternative. If you want to try our fruit chews, you don’t need a plane ticket, a passport, or luggage – you only need to be a patient who is registered with New Hampshire’s Therapeutic Cannabis Program!
Like all Prime’s fruit chews, these are made with real fruit and no artificial flavors. They contain mango, pineapple, and dragon fruit, a delicious combination that we think will be a big hit with patients this summer.
Our tropical fruit chews are now available in both Chichester and Merrimack. If you’d like to be one of the first patients to try them, visit our menu to place an order!
Great news! NAMI New Hampshire has informed us that our end-of-month donation will be doubled by another company. This means every contribution you make will have twice as much impact as we initially expected!
The other company that will be matching our donation is The Hartford. We greatly appreciate their generosity and support for this worthy cause!
In case you missed the initial announcement, we are collecting cash donations for NAMI New Hampshire throughout the month of May. For each cash donation of $5 or more, Prime will award 1,000 loyalty points, up to a maximum of four times during the month of May.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and Prime ATC is proud to be raising money to support NAMI New Hampshire.
NAMI stands for “National Alliance on Mental Illness.” The organization’s noble mission is “to improve the lives of all people affected by mental illness and suicide through support, education and advocacy.”
NAMI New Hampshire envisions a future where all people impacted by mental illness and suicide are able to access evidence-based treatment and support.
Founded in 1982, NAMI New Hampshire has been in existence for 40 years. Despite their many successes, there is still a tremendous need for mental health education, support services, and advocacy in New Hampshire.
We will be collecting donations from patients and caregivers and rewarding you with loyalty points. For each cash donation of $5 or more, Prime will award 1,000 loyalty points, up to a maximum of four times during the month of May.
The New Hampshire Senate has killed two cannabis legalization bills, eliminating any hope for legalization efforts in 2022. On Thursday, April 28, the Senate rejected HB 629 in a 9-15 vote. This bill would have legalized possession and limited home cultivation. If you’d like to see how your senator voted, the roll call vote is available here.
The death of HB 629 is disappointing but not surprising. For legalization supporters, the only silver lining is the fact that senators will face re-election this year. When election season arrives, we will share information about where senators and candidates stand on cannabis policy so voters will be informed.
It now appears certain that the state monopoly cannabis legalization bill will not pass in 2022. On Wednesday, April 20, the N.H. Senate Ways and Means Committee unanimously voted against HB 1598. The bill will still receive a vote in the full Senate, but it is very unlikely to pass in light of this rejection by the committee.
If you’d like to read more about the Senate vote on HB 1598, check out this article.
In other news, the Senate postponed a vote that had been scheduled for another cannabis legalization bill. HB 629 was supposed to receive a vote on Thursday, April 21, after being approved in a 3-2 vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee. The vote on this bill, which would simply legalize possession and limited home cultivation, will be rescheduled for another day.
If you haven’t already contacted your senator about HB 629, please look them up here and ask them to vote in favor!
Happy April 20! We’ve got more 4/20 sales to announce, and one of them involves a new product we are launching: Rough Cut Flower!
At Prime ATC, we take great pride in our hand-trimming process. Unfortunately, trimming flower by hand is time consuming and labor intensive. In order to make more cannabis flower available at a lower price point for patients, we are now machine-trimming some of our flower and calling it “Rough Cut.” This new flower product will debut at 20% off from April 20 to April 30!
After the sale ends (beginning May 1) the regular price for Silver Tier Rough Cut will be $140 for 14g. Gold Tier Rough Cut will be priced at $150 for 14g, and Platinum Tier Rough Cut will be $160 for 14g.
For patients who strongly prefer our hand-trimmed flower, don’t worry – the Rough Cut is an addition to our menu, not a replacement for the flower you already know and love!
In addition to the Rough Cut, all our rosins and accessories will be on sale for 20% off from April 20 to April 30.
What day could be better than 4/20 for learning about cannabis cultivation? We are pleased to announce that our cultivation manager, Antonio Garcia, will be available to speak with patients and caregivers at the Chichester dispensary between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20.
If you’re curious to learn more about Prime’s cultivation methods, this is a great opportunity to meet the man in charge!
Antonio has been a member of our cultivation team for more than five years, and he would be happy to tell you anything you might like to know about our cannabis plants. He will also have a table set up with some photos and information about the cultivation process.
We hope lots of patients will take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about cannabis cultivation on 4/20!
The action on cannabis legalization bills has been heating up in Concord in the last few weeks. Last week, for the first time in New Hampshire history, a Senate committee voted in favor of a cannabis legalization bill! The Senate Judiciary Committee approved HB 629, the bill that would simply legalize possession and limited home cultivation for adults, in a 3-2 vote on Thursday, April 14. The full Senate will vote on the bill Thursday, April 21.
Prime ATC strongly supports HB 629, and we are grateful to the three senators on the Judiciary Committee who voted in favor: Senator Harold French, Senator Jay Kahn, and Senator Becky Whitley. If you’d like to read more about this history-making vote, here’s a news article. If you’d like to contact your state senator, you can find their contact info here.
But before the Senate votes on HB 629 on Thursday, the Senate Ways and Means Committee will hold a public hearing Wednesday morning on the bill that would create a state monopoly for adult-use cannabis sales (HB 1598). Yes, you are reading that correctly – the state monopoly cannabis bill is scheduled for a hearing on 4/20.
Prime ATC does not support this bill, in part because we believe it presents a serious threat to the Therapeutic Cannabis Program. You can read more about HB 1598 in this article. A detailed summary of the bill is available here.
If you would like to attend the hearing on HB 1598, it will take place in Room 100 of the State House beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 20. Members of the public are welcome to testify if they wish. You can also sign in remotely if you’d like to indicate your position to the committee or submit your thoughts in writing.
Thanks for reading – we hope you find this information helpful!
