The N.H. Therapeutic Cannabis Medical Oversight Board wants to hear from patients at their meeting on Wednesday, December 1!
New Hampshire’s therapeutic cannabis law passed in 2013, and dispensaries began serving patients in 2016. Now that the program has been operational for more than five years, the Medical Oversight Board (TCMOB) has scheduled a listening session to hear perspectives from “patients, caregivers, medical providers, and other members of the public.” If you would like to share your experiences with the program and/or suggest improvements, this is an ideal opportunity to do so!
Here are the details:
- When: Wednesday, December 1, 2021
- Time: 5:30 to 7:30 PM
- Where: NH Department of Health and Human Services
29 Hazen Drive, Auditorium
Concord, NH 03301
- Remote Option: Zoom
The TCMOB is comprised of 13 members, including 10 medical providers and one qualifying patient. (The patient representative is Heather Marie Brown, who advocated for this opportunity for patients to address the TCMOB). Although the TCMOB does not have any regulatory authority over the program, it is tasked with making policy recommendations to legislators and regulators, and its recommendations are taken seriously.
If you are not comfortable speaking in public, the TCMOB invites you to share your thoughts with them via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

We look forward to hearing patients’ perspectives at this listening session. This is sure to be educational for all who attend, so mark your calendars!
