Medical cannabis in Rhode Island: laws

Medical cannabis has been legal in the state since 2006, when Edward O. Hawkins and Thomas C. Slater Medical Marijuana Act was adopted, which actually decriminalized medical cannabis. The law protects the right for use, cultivation, and storage of weed in the amount of up to 12 adult plants, 12 plants in the vegetative stage of maturation, and 2.5 ounces of dry hemp cones. At the same time, as of 2020, recreational cannabis is illegal in the state. In this, local authorities made attempts to adopt a so-called law “About adult cannabis use”, but at the moment, the bill has been not supported. Meanwhile, the state has excluded criminal liability for the storage of 1 ounce of cannabis, limited to a civil offense followed by a fine.

Details on the signing of the law and approval of the Department

Hawkins and Thomas C. Slater Medical Marijuana Act were adopted in 2006 to regulate the medical use of cannabis legislatively. The basic rights of patients requiring cannabis therapy were spelled out in it. It also contains the basic terms, such as caregiver and authorized buyer. To date, the Rhode Island Department of Health is guided by the law of Edward O. Hawkins and Thomas C. Slater in its actions aimed at regulating the field of medical cannabis.
