OPEN A DISPENSARY IN RHODE ISLAND
In January of 2006, Rhode Island legalized the possession and use of medical marijuana for qualifying patients in the state. A registered Rhode Island compassion center may acquire, possess, cultivate, manufacture, deliver, transfer, transport, supply, or dispense marijuana to registered qualifying patients and their registered primary caregivers who have designated the compassion center as one of their primary caregivers. On April 19, 2013 Rhode Island’s first medical marijuana dispensary, The Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center in Providence, opened.
