NH Senate Rejects Pot but Approve Potato

potatoThe NH Senate said no to pot, maybe to hemp, and yes to the white potato. Yesterday the NH Senate rejected a bill that would have decriminalized possession of small amounts marijuana. A bill prohibiting classifying hemp as a controlled substance to be grown for the industrial use was retained for futher study.
However, the Senate voted to make the white potato the official vegetable of NH. The White potato owes it’s recognition to the students of Derry Village School who enlisted State Representative John O’Connor to bring the bill to Concord that honors the first white potato planted in the North in Derry in1719 by Scotch/Irish settlers.  See related story here.
