With just two months remaining in this year’s Rhode Island legislative session, marijuana legalization is still very much on the table. If enough supporters of sensible marijuana policy reform take action, Rhode Island could become the first state in the country to to legalize and regulate marijuana sales through the state legislature!
The General Assembly needs to hear from you:
- Call your state representative and state senator and urge them to call for a floor discussion and vote on legalization this year. Visit this website and enter your address to look up your state legislators and their telephone numbers.
- Click here to send an email to your legislators — it takes less than a minute!
Conversations about the fate of legalization — and the details of the legislation — are happening in the State House. Now is a critical time to vocalize our support for legalization and advocate for a law that addresses the historical harms of the war on marijuana.
We could end marijuana prohibition in Rhode Island by July if enough of us do our part and respectfully communicate our views to lawmakers. Please don’t sit on the sidelines. Take action and forward this message to others so they can help, too!
