Is weed legal in Rhode Island? Ayuh. Although the Ocean State notoriously had some of the strictest mandatory minimums for cannabis possession in the U.S. in the past, Little Rhody legalized medical marijuana in 2006, making it the 11th state to do so. In May 2022, voters overwhelmingly passed legislation to legalize Rhode Island recreational weed. While it took until December 2022 for adults to be able to purchase recreational Rhode Island cannabis from one of five Rhode Island cannabis dispensaries within the state, the state is expected to issue an additional 28 licenses over the next year. Of these 28 licenses, a portion will be set aside specifically for worker-owned cooperatives and social equity applicants. Wicked cool.
The smallest state in the U.S. is now open to all of the health and wellness benefits that cannabis can provide. That’s not all, though. Given its robust Rhode Island weed testing requirements, it is gaining the reputation for having some of the safest and purest medicinal cannabis products in its region.
