Rally To Support Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

Rhode Island State House Show your support for medical marijuana (you may need it some day) and the newly licensed Compassion Centers by joining JoAnne Lepannen, executive director of RIPAC, in the State House Rotunda today, Wednesday May 4th, at 1pm. Recent news that U.S. Attorney Neronha intends to take action against the three licensed dispensaries when they open came as a shock to patients statewide (and I might add, the licensed proprietors who have already sunk quite a a bit of money into preparing these facilities). Speaking to the ProJo’s Zachary Malinowski Lepannen said,

. . .that she has been flooded with calls from many of the 3,459 patients in the program designed to help those with chronic pain and other medical maladies cope with the ailments.

“We are having much more of a depression problem,” she said. “We are talking about a population of people with very debilitating illness. People are losing hope. They just want to pull down the shades and give up.”
