Legislation is pending in Rhode Island that would make medical cannabis more affordable and accessible for all.
Bill H5453 would:
- Allow physicians and nurse practitioners to recommend medical cannabis to any patient whom they believe would benefit from its therapeutic use;
- Provide discounts to patients who demonstrate financial hardship;
- Prohibit government agencies from discriminating against patients for lawful medical cannabis use; and
- Remove the limit on the number of retail outlets and reduce application fees for business licenses.
It takes just one minute to send a message to your state legislators asking them to cosponsor H5453!
