Rhode Island Medical Marijuana underway

The first patient has applied for the new medical marijuana law in Rhode Island, which allows qualified persons to possess or buy 2.5 ounces of marijuana for medical purposes.
This was a law passed in January over the Governor’s veto. I wasn’t aware at the time, however, that it’s temporary. According to the article, the legislature must renew the law next year or it will expire. (How come they never do drug war penalties that way?)
One oddity in the article. The apnews.myway piece is illustrated with a picture of Angel Raich, the famous California medical marijuana patient. It’s a rather strange juxtaposition, since there’s no mention of her case in the article.

[Thanks, Bill]
