New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu has signed a bill that decriminalizes small amounts of marijuana, reports New Hampshire Public Radio.

Under the new law set to take effect in 60 days, those in possession of up to three-quarters of an ounce would face a civil violation and be subject to a fine of up to $100 for a first offense.

New Hampshire is now the 22nd state and the last in New England to decriminalize small amounts of the drug.

Governor Sununu also signed a bill Tuesday that creates a commission to study the legalization, regulation and taxation of marijuana.
