Rhode Island Bill to Legalize Cannabis Coming Soon

By Marijuana Policy Project

State Representative Edith Ajello (D – Providence) and state Senator Josh Miller (D -Cranston) are currently reaching out to their colleagues to ask them to sign on to their proposal to replaceri Rhode Island’s marijuana prohibition with a system that regulates marijuana for adults’ use. If you are a Rhode Island residentemail your state representative and senator today and ask them to sign on to this bill as a cosponsor!

The Marijuana Regulation, Control, and Taxation Act is similar to the laws that voters approved in Colorado and Washington in 2012. The proposal would allow individuals 21 and older to possess and cultivate limited amounts of marijuana. It also directs the Department of Revenue to license and regulate marijuana producers and retail marijuana stores.

This sensible approach to marijuana would create new industries with new jobs and raise needed revenue for the state. It would also allow law enforcement focus on more serious crimes.
