Rhode Island: Now allowing out of state medical marijuana cards
In July of 2018, Rhode Island expanded compassion center access to medical marijuana patients across state lines. At that time, the state’s MMJ regulatory body outlined regulations for sales to nonresidents: * Dispensaries must use “reasonably good-faith efforts” to verify nonresident medical marijuana ID cards by asking for a second form of government-issued photo ID. * Nonresident patients must be entered in a state database that tracks sales. * Nonresident patients are limited to how much cannabis they can buy – 2.5 ounces of marijuana or its equivalent in other forms every 15 days. While Canna Care Docs is in full support of expanding access to out of state patients traveling through the Ocean State, the spirit of the regulations has been misinterpreted putting some medical cannabis patients at risk of possessing a fraudulent medical cannabis certification.

Wellness wednesday Suzannah Rowan
Saturday Spotlight Interview with Suzannah Rowan, team member in the Hartford, CT office. -What are the conditions you are currently treating with cannabis? “I have been using cannabis for a number of them.

I found a physician who developed an experimental surgery to treat the cause of my pain, not just the symptoms. From 2012-2013, I traveled back and forth to Washington D.C. and had 4 surgeries within a few months of each other. With no test available to confirm a diagnosis without surgery, this was by far the biggest risk I have taken in my life. With great success from the surgeries and the ability to treat my daily pain with cannabis, this has allowed me to be able to go back to work and have a normal life again.” -What was the treatment plan your physicians recommended to you after you were diagnosed? “They prescribed me most available opioids to […]
