Kyle Tasker, a former New Hampshire state legislator, who was previously charged with attempting to seduce a 14-year-old girl into a sexual rendezvous, also smoked weed in the Statehouse and sold it to several other lawmakers, but there wasn’t sufficient evidence to charge them with drug-related offenses,Former state Representative, The attorney general announced on Friday.

The 30-year-old former lawmaker left his post back in March after he was arrested on a charge of attempting to lure a minor for sex, as well as on three unrelated drug charges.

Attorney General Joseph Foster’s report revealed a state police investigation of Tasker’s Facebook activity and iPad pointed investigators to four state representatives: Republicans Joseph Lachance, Pamela Tucker, and Ted Wright, and Democrat Amanda Bouldin.

Bouldin informed authorities that she didn’t purchase marijuana from Kyle Tasker but smoked it with him in his vehicle and was in the room while he smoked it in the Statehouse, WMUR reported.

Lachance was the only one who purchased weed from Tasker multiple times, the report indicated. He informed law enforcement officials that he needed the drug to help him with his chronic pain and other medical conditions and has since received a medical marijuana card. He named Tasker the “Club Med of weed,” referring the diversity of high-end and high-priced strains of the drug he had.

Tucker said she purchased pot from Kyle Tasker once, along with two vessels of “elixir” which contained marijuana for “sleep and energy.”

She stated that problems in her personal life are what caused her to medicate herself, but she stopped buying the weed “because it was hypocritical to use marijuana when her official position as a legislator was to oppose its use,” the report read.

Wright informed police that he bought the marijuana to help his wife deal with the debilitating side effects of her cancer treatment.

Shawn Jasper, the House Speaker, said those who have perpetrated the offenses should “consider whether their actions have compromised the dignity and integrity of the New Hampshire House of Representatives.”

“There are no charges, and therefore no criminal proceedings, but the voters will decide whether or not the representatives running for re-election deserve their votes,” he added.

At the time of Tasker’s apprehension, he was in his third two-year term. Investigators claim that he began communicating with a 14-year-old girl over Facebook, volunteering to get her weed and alcohol and offering sexual encounters. Authorities announced that he attempted to meet the teenager, but was met by law enforcement officers instead.

The attorney general’s office determined that there was sufficient evidence to charge Tasker for his links with his drug deals to lawmakers, but a jury would not likely convict him. However, the report notes that the multiple felonies he is already facing are sufficient to hold him accountable.
