For today's weed news to go to the great state of Rhode Island.
Earlier this week, Gina Raimondo, the governor of the state of Rhode Island, reluctantly introduced a plan to make recreational Cannabis legal in her state.
But don't get too excited just yet. From the looks of it, her proposal resembles a collection of all of the most restrictive aspects of recreational cannabis laws borrowed from the 10 states that already allow recreational trees.
Her proposal would allow only 1 oz of flower per person to be purchased at any given time. It would also require that any edibles sold contain no more than just 5 mg of THC per serving. Oh yeah, and forget about weed gummy bears cuz they're not going to be allowed either. Nobody in Rhode Island would be permitted to grow any meds at home and of course, concentrate such as BHO, crumble, ear wax, shatter, hash and the like would also remain illegal.
That makes me wonder what Rick Simpson Oil would be classified as in Rhode Island. I can make myself understand banning shatter and dabs, but RSO is probably one of the most effective forms of MMJ that exists. Especially for people suffering from cancer. But maybe they would still allow MMJ patients to purchase it somewhere but not have the general public zoned out on Rick Simpson Oil? I guess that would make sense.
This proposal, if passed, would make Rhode Island one of, if not the most strict and restrictive recreational state in the Union. As a matter of fact, experts in the industry are saying that it may not even be worth it to try to open up shop in Rhode Island.
And let's not forget that Massachusetts, which is basically down the street from Rhode Island, just started selling legal recreational weed and the other neighboring state, Connecticut, lawmakers are mulling over recreational legalization themselves. It would only be logical to think that if a person from Rhode Island can just drive a half an hour to get everything they want in a neighboring state, they might choose to do so rather than dealing with the super limited selection of products that their governor is proposing.
I guess crossing state lines with cannabis will probably still be legal regardless though. So that's also something to keep in mind.
But nevertheless, seeing yet another East Coast State throwing up there green in support of cannabis law reform, especially recreational, it's still a very good thing.
Let's hope that governor Raimondo and her colleagues take some time to listen to the public, like they've been doing in New York State, and get some feedback to possibly adjust and loosen up some of these crazy rules she has in store.
But, as usual with these types of stories, there's nothing else we can do but just kick back, blaze something and watch this shit unfold.
And that's what's up in Rhode Island!
