The report provides information from the Therapeutic Cannabis Registry, the annual reports from the Alternative Treatment Centers, and the Qualifying Patient Satisfaction Survey. It provides details about qualifying patients and designated caregivers who were active in the program as of June 30, 2019.
DHHS provides this report annually to the New Hampshire Legislature’s Health and Human Services Oversight Committee, the New Hampshire Board of Medicine, and the New Hampshire Board of Nursing. The report provides important information on patterns of certification in several categories: qualifying patient and designated caregiver, location, age, medical condition, symptom or side effect, and medical provider. Data from the report can then be used for analysis and research to inform future policy, educational, and clinical decisions.
In addition, the 2019 report contains an addendum related to HB 335 from the 2019 legislative session regarding the expansion of therapeutic cannabis dispensary locations in the state.
