CONCORD — Gov. Maggie Hassan has said she supports legalizing medical marijuana in New Hampshire, but a proposal to allow patients or caregivers to cultivate their own plants could be a sticking point. Supporters said Friday that home growing is crucial for access by patients in rural areas and would bring down costs for people facing steep medical bills. But a spokesman for Hassan says the governor has concerns about home growing. By Morgan True.
