Ask your state legislators to support legalizing marijuana for adults!

MPP

While our neighbors and states across the country are embracing marijuana legalization, Rhode Island has lagged behind. It's time for our legislators to stop kicking the can down the road and take action! 

Earlier this year, Gov. Gina Raimondo introduced her budget proposal for the upcoming fiscal year. Article 13 of that legislation includes a framework to legalize and regulate marijuana for adults 21 and older. You can read a summary of the provisions here

We're asking supporters of sensible marijuana policy reform to contact their state senator and representative and urge them to call for a serious consideration of Gov. Raimondo's proposal. At the same time, we urge the General Assembly to include three important amendments to the governor's proposal: 

  • In the case of a conflict with federal law, establish privately-run system of retail stores as a back up to replace state-run establishments. 
  • Remove the ban on people with prior drug felonies from owning and operating a marijuana business. 
  • Allow adults to cultivate a small number of plants in their residence. 

Please take action now and share this page with others so they can contact their legislators, too!
