CONCORD, N.H. - New Hampshire's House rejected a bill that would have legalized a small amount of marijuana.

It would have legalized up to one ounce of pot for recreational use for anyone 21 and older.

In January, the N.H. House voted to give preliminary approval to the bill, but it was killed after a 192 to 140 vote.

Governor Maggie Hassan and local police were against the bill, while voters FOX 44 and ABC 22 spoke to supported it.
