Rhode Island legislators announce marijuana legislation

RI Legislators Unveil Bill To Legalize Marijuana

A plan to legalize marijuana for adults in Rhode Island has been introduced by state legislators. This is not the first attempt to legalize adult-use marijuana in Rhode Island. Last year the House and Senate could not reconcile disagreements, including who would regulate the cannabis industry.

The new bill establishes a Cannabis Control Commission to oversee the implementation of adult-use marijuana legalization and eventually, oversight of the medical marijuana program, after a transfer from the Department of Business Regulation.
