Support Rhode Island Patients

Bills to support the rights of Rhode Island medical marijuana patients passed overwhelmingly in both Senate and House committees. The House Health, Education, and Welfare Committee voted to continue protecting patients in a 10-3 vote and the Senate Health and Human Services committee approved the legislation by 5-0.

Are you from the little Rhody? Then contact your legislators here and tell them to support keeping Rhode Island patients safer from arrest.
