NEWS OF THE NORTH: NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE COMMITTEE APPROVES BILL FOR ADULT USE CANNABIS

It doesn’t take a deep dive into the data and statistics of things like the rise of the infused cannabis beverage market, or the national cannabis reform conversation at large to see that change is coming.

And when you’re a state (like say, New Hampshire) still under cannabis prohibition, and yet a short drive to pretty much every state around you has legal cannabis available – either medical or recreational – it’s probably best to oppose opposition in your own backyard.

And now that a New Hampshire House committee approved a bill today legalizing (if not commercializing) cannabis for adult use in the Granite State, our neighbor to the north just took a step in the right direction.

The Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee advanced the bill in a 13-7 vote. The bill would allow individuals 21 and older to possess and gift up to three-fourths an ounce of cannabis and grow up to six plants at home. A floor vote by the full House of Representatives is expected on February 6.

“Now that New Hampshire is literally surrounded by jurisdictions where cannabis is legal for adults, our current policies can no longer be justified in any way,” said Matt Simon, New England political director for the Marijuana Policy Project, in a press release. “It’s time for the House, Senate and Gov. Chris Sununu to work together and move cannabis policies into the 21st century.”

Kyle Jaeger over at Marijuana Moment covered the news today:

New Hampshire Gov. Sununu

Tax-and-regulate marijuana legislation has advanced in the legislature in prior sessions, but it never arrived on the governor’s desk.

Even if it did make it that far, however, it’s unclear if Sununu, a Republican, would sign it. He’s voiced opposition to commercial legalization, and he vetoed a bill last year that would’ve allowed medical cannabis patients to cultivate their own marijuana, raising questions about whether he’d be willing to support this latest measure extending that right to all adults over 21.

In any case, the New Hampshire development comes amid a flurry of legislative activity around cannabis in the Northeast.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) included legalization in his budget last week, as did Rhode Island’s governor, who pitched a state-run cannabis model in her plan. In New Jersey, the legislature approved a referendum to put the question of recreational legalization before voters during the November election. Top lawmakers in Connecticut are also confident  that marijuana reform will advance this year. In Vermont, advocates are hopeful that lawmakers will add a legal sales component to the state’s current noncommercial cannabis law.

Whatever happens in New Hampshire, the fact remains that the opportunities for private investors seeking to place private capital in the legal cannabis space continue to rise. Between global cannabis sales grew 48% to $15 billion dollars in 2019, to the coming cannabis debt wave some experts are saying is on the way, the time for motivated investors to find the top 1% outlier cannabis entrepreneurial opportunities through vetted channels is now.

How Family Office Club works with Cannapreneur Partners
Just about every event the Family Office Club produces has someone that wants to sponsor it from the legal cannabis space. They’ve become familiar with the space and the area of the cannabis people try to make sense of, from where to invest, learning about federal law vs state laws regarding legal markets, and so on. As the exclusive thought leader on cannabis for The Family Office Club, we have built a strong relationship through regular speaking engagements on stage at their investor summits while fostering new strategic partnerships and investor deal flow. Additionally, Family Office Club Founder, Richard Wilson, is appointed as a director on Cannapreneur Partners Board of Directors.

"There is a lot of education needed, and it’s an area that we’re going to have a group on stage [from the industry] at almost any Family Office Club investor event anyway, so it’s much more productive to be aligned with a firm that is in line with our mentality and long term vision of doing business. As I’ve mentioned in my books and Family Office Club podcasts, having high integrity, and aligning all parts of people on a team with shared values means an entrepreneur is more aligned in their industry and investor can put things in their portfolio to get better valuations in the long run." - Richard Wilson, Founder of the Family Office Club

How does the Family Office Club works with Investors?
As one of the top thought leaders in bringing partners and clients investments, capital raises, and private capital placement for high net worth families, the Family Office Club is making the industry more efficient while helping clients navigate a frustrating area: A lot of ultra-wealthy families don’t speak to each other.

By interviewing hundreds of family offices on stage every year, as well as in their Family Office Club podcast, and in the books they have published, the Family Office Club has proven they can help the investment industry be more efficient.

"Doing so with credible counter parties that share our long term views is we’re keeping an eye out for. Whenever there’s a new opportunity, there are some investors that get in early and take a mega view of an industry, kind of like what we have at the Family Office Club. I can relate to that perspective and take that view instead of defining themselves as a retail operator in space or defining themselves as one piece of space they’re trying to put together an ecosystem and a strategic platform. We don’t define ourselves as running a Family Office biz, we’re trying to grow the Family Office marketplace and make it easier to close deals with family offices." - Richard Wilson, Founder of the Family Office Club
