Gov. Chris Sununu proposed a path forward Friday

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A day after New Hampshire legislators rejected the latest attempt to legalize recreational marijuana in the state, Gov. Chris Sununu — a potential Republican presidential candidate — proposed a path forward Friday that is similar to how the state controls liquor sales. New Hampshire is the only state in New England that makes it a crime to smoke pot recreationally. He proposed that the state regulate recreational marijuana in the same way it controls the sale of wine and spirits. Sununu suggested that the goal could be accomplished this legislative session by amending a current bill. Legislative leaders did not immediately comment on his proposal.
