Residents of Rhode Island may have an opportunity to vote whether or not to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes for adults over the age of 21 this year.
Lawmakers are filing legislation this week to legalize the substance. Representative Scott Slater will file in the state’s House, while Senator Joshua Miller will file the Senate version of the bill in his respective chambers.
Said bills would legalize the right for adults 21 and over to cultivate a small marijuana garden for personal consumption, and would also permit the possession of up to an ounce of dried flowers.
In addition, the proposed bills in question would permit the establishing of commercial marijuana cultivation operations and retail dispensary outlets.
