RI Senate Passes Medical Marijuana Bill

The AP reports that "Rhode Island would be the third state in the nation and the first on the East Coast to allow nonprofit stores to sell marijuana to medical patients under legislation approved Tuesday by state lawmakers." The state Senate voted 30-2 to allow three stores to sell marijuana to more than 680 patients registered with the state Department of Health. The measure now goes to Gov. Don Carcieri, who has previously vetoed bills legalizing medical marijuana.
