RIPAC meeting tonight

RIPACRIPAC will hold a Community Meeting Tuesday at 7pm, at AIDS Project RI, located at 232 West Exchange Street, Providence. All Rhode Islanders — patients, caregivers, advocates, and residents — are invited to come together to discuss the RI Medical Marijuana Program and share information and experiences.

The difficulties facing licensed patients and caregivers in procuring marijuana were addressed last month in the Phoenix as well as a sympathetic editorial in the Providence Journal.

RIPAC Executive Director, Jesse Stout, reports that on February 26, twin bills were introduced in the Rhode Island General Assembly by House Representative Tom Slater and Senator Rhoda Perry that would regulate distribution of medical marijuana by allowing a non-profit Compassion Center, an independent state-regulated facility, to distribute medical marijuana to Rhode Island’s licensed patients. Let your reps know you support these medical marijuana initiatives.
