Rhode Island: State To License Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Rhode Island: State To License Medical Marijuana Dispensaries
Quote:Rhode Island: State To License Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Providence, RI: Lawmakers passed legislation this week making Rhode Island the second state to license and regulate the distribution of medical marijuana to authorized patients.

Republican Gov. Donald Carcieri vetoed the 2009 Medical Marijuana Act last week. But on Tuesday, members of the General Assembly voted to override the Governor's veto by a vote of 102 to 3.

The new law takes effect immediately.

Earlier this year the New Mexico legislature codified language allowing for the state to license non-profit facilities to dispense medicinal cannabis. However, no such facilities are presently up and running.

In California, several hundred facilities provide medical cannabis to qualified patients, though these operations are typically regulated by local governments.

Approximately 700 Rhode Island residents are registered with the state to use marijuana legally. Lawmakers legalized the possession and use of medicinal cannabis by authorized patients in 2007.
