For Over 300 Rhode Islanders, Marijuana Provides Legal Pain Relief

Prescription Pot

Take the time and read this excellent article by Amanda Milkovits in todays Journal. I was surprised by the number of legal prescriptions here in Rhode Island, which was the 11th state to legalize medical marijuana. Governor Carcieri, whose two vetoes of medical marijuana legislation were overridden, continues to block legislation that would prevent legal users of prescribed pot from facing federal charges while James Langevin and Sheldon Whitehouse support an amendment that would prohibit federal money from being used to override state medical marijuana laws.
