New Hampshire: Attempts to legalize marijuana stalled in the New Hampshire Legislature this year, although possession of small amounts (three-quarters of an ounce of marijuana or five grams of hashish) was reduced to a violation, punishable by a $100 fine.
Massachusetts: It has been legal since the end of 2016. If you’re 21 or older, you can possess up to one ounce of marijuana or five grams of concentrate outside of your residence, and up to 10 ounces of marijuana inside your residence. Adults can possess and cultivate up to six marijuana plants, with a maximum of 12 per household.
Vermont: Act 86 legalizing marijuana goes into effect Sunday. Adults age 21 and over can possess up to one ounce of marijuana and five grams of concentrate. Adults are allowed to grow two mature plants and four immature plants
