What Are the Penalties for Possession and Manufacture and Sales of Marijuana in New Hampshire?

Possession. Currently in New Hampshire, it is a crime to knowingly possess marijuana. The penalties for breaking the law are outlined in N.H. RSA § 318-B:26 and may include a fine up to $2,000, up to one year in jail, or both.

Manufacture and Sales. What about the manufacturing or selling of marijuana? Both are also illegal in New Hampshire and the penalties for these acts vary based on the amount possessed and whether the offense was a first or subsequent violation. N.H. RSA § 318-B:26 lists penalties as such:

Up to one ounce of marijuana.

  • First offense: Penalties include a fine of up to $25,000, up to three years in prison, or both.
  • Second offense: Penalties carry a fine of up to $50,000, up to six years in prison, or both.

Between one ounce and five pounds of marijuana.

  • First offense: Penalties include a fine of up to $100,000, up to seven years in prison, or both.
  • Second offense: Penalties carry a fine of up to $200,000, up to fifteen years in prison, or both.

More than five pounds of marijuana.

  • First offense: Penalties includes a fine of up to $300,000, up to twenty years in prison, or both.
  • Second offense: Penalties carry a fine of up to $500,000, up to forty years in prison, or both.
