Now accepting applications . . .
The Rhode Island health department will start accepting applications from hopeful medical marijuana dispensary operators starting Thursday, just in time for St. Joseph’s day. Don’t get too excited; dorm rooms and off-campus apartments aren’t zoned for this sort of thing.
The General Assembly passed a bill this summer allowing for the creation of up to three “compassion centers” in the state. Rhode Island has had a medical marijuana program for years, but before now, patients needed to grow their own marijuana or buy it on the street.
