New Hampshire Alternative Treatment Center Guidelines
An Alternative Treatment Center (ATC) is a not-for-profit entity registered under RSA 126-X:7 that acquires, possesses, cultivates, manufactures, delivers, transfers, transports, sells, supplies, and dispenses cannabis, and related supplies and educational materials, to qualifying patients and alternative treatment centers.
- The request for application (RFA) submission fee shall be $3000;
- The RFA selection fee, which will be credited to the new ATC as part of the allocation, shall be $20,000;
There are four Alternative Treatment Centers (ATCs) operating in New Hampshire. The ATCs are located in Dover, Merrimack, Lebanon, and Plymouth. A Qualifying Patient may select any of the ATCs but may select only one at any given time. A Qualifying Patient will be allowed to purchase cannabis only from the ATC he or she has selected. A Qualifying Patient may change his or her ATC selection at any time by completing a “Change of Information/Lost Card” form and submitting it to the Program. The Program will inform you when your selected ATC has been changed.

The History of New Hampshire Marijuana
HB 573 passed in 2013 which allows patients with qualifying medical conditions to register with the state Department of Health and Human Services to possess up to 2 ounces of marijuana at a time. The Department was also tasked to select 4 non-profit alternative treatment centers (ATCs) to grow and sell marijuana to patients. As of May 29, 2015, the department announced the 3 selected applicants to operate the state’s first 3 ATC’s which are geographically spread out throughout the state.
Qualifying Medical Conditions: Cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome, hepatitis C currently receiving antiviral treatment, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, agitation of Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, chronic pancreatitis, spinal cord injury or disease, traumatic brain injury, or one or more injuries that significantly interferes with daily activities as documented by the patient’s provider; A severely debilitating or terminal medical condition or its treatment that has produced at least one of the following: elevated intraocular pressure, cachexia, chemotherapy-induced anorexia, wasting syndrome, severe pain that has not responded to previously prescribed medication or surgical measures or for which other treatment options produced serious side effects, constant or severe nausea, moderate to severe vomiting, seizures, or severe, persistent muscle spasms.
Update: The state’s Commission to Study the Legalization, Regulation, and Taxation of Marijuana has completed its work, and the result is an informative report that the State Legislature will consider in 2019. After 26 meetings and hearing testimony from all 8 states that regulate marijuana for adult-use, the commission settled on 54 specific recommendations for the policymakers in New Hampshire.
