CONCORD — A bill that would decriminalize small amounts of marijuana possession overwhelmingly passed the New Hampshire state House of Representatives on Wednesday.

The bill, which would allow possession of up to once ounce of marijuana, was approved by a 318-36 vote.

The measure has passed through the chamber eight times over the past ten years, but has repeatedly been shot down in the state Senate.

Asked by reporters after the House vote if he would sign the bill if it reached his desk, Gov. Chris Sununu said "I support decriminalizing marijuana."
