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:

You can also help raise awareness about the issue by publishing a letter to the editor. Go here to use our action tool to quickly and easily submit a letter to your local newspaper!

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!

Thank you.
