ACLU Plans To File Lawsuit Over Medical Marijuana Program Changes In Rhode Island

The group says it plans to file a lawsuit on Tuesday.
Since the summer, the state has required patients who want to participate in the program to have an application signed by a physician. Previously the state accepted applications signed by nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants.
Medical marijuana advocate JoAnne Leppanen says the change makes it harder for seriously ill people to get the medicine they need.
Every encroachment against medical marijuana rights, no matter where they occur, must be fought hard. It is tough enough to advance medical marijuana in some states without the state or federal government causing things to regress.
Medical marijuana patients are not second class citizens, and they shouldn’t be treated that way.
