In order to be afforded legal protection under the Rhode Island Medical Marijuana law, as per the Edward O. Hawkins and Thomas C. Slater Medical Marijuana Act, qualified medical marijuana patients must register with the state patient registry and possess a valid state-issued identification card by submitting a medical marijuana card application to the Rhode Island Medical Marijuana Program (RIMMP).
A Rhode Island medical marijuana card is an identification card issued by the Rhode Island Department of Health (DOH), to qualifying patients, personal caregivers, or dispensary agents. The Rhode Island medical marijuana card verifies that the patient has received a written certification from a physician, stating that he or she may benefit from the medicinal use of marijuana, as per the qualifying medical conditions outlined by the State program.
For purposes of the DOH, and law enforcement, the medical marijuana card serves to identify those patients who are exempt from Rhode Island criminal and civil penalties, for conduct pursuant to the medical use of marijuana.
Obtaining a Rhode Island marijuana card makes it possible for you to have legal access to medical marijuana for treating serious medical conditions. Under the Medical Marijuana Act of Rhode Island, you can now purchase, store and cultivate marijuana for medical treatment.
