On Tuesday, New Hampshire became the sixth and final state in New England to legalize medical marijuana.

"Allowing doctors to provide relief to patients through the use of appropriately regulated and dispensed medical marijuana is the compassionate and right policy for the state of New Hampshire, and this legislation ensures that we approach this policy in the right way with measures to prevent abuse," New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) said in a statement.
