@MJINews: Rhode Island Emergency Regulations Create New Category to Supply to Dispensaries
Worried the state’s medical marijuana program could face a severe shortage of legal product come the new year, business regulation officials issued emergency regulations Wednesday to get a new category of private pot growers, called cultivators, up and running as quickly as possible.
Those cultivators will replace patient caregivers as vital suppliers for the state’s three dispensaries, which currently aren’t producing all the various strains of the plant needed for the state’s more than 15,470 patients.
A new report from the Pew Research Center reveals marijuana legalization is gaining support among Americans. Overall, 57 percent of American adults support legalizing pot, while 37 percent do not, according to Pew’s Fact Tank blog. Support for marijuana legalization is at 71 percent among Millennials.
