Guide to Rhode Island Dispensaries: Things To Know When Shopping

Areas We Serve

Cannabis laws are being updated all the time, so it can sometimes be hard to keep up with what’s going on in your state and the ones nearby. Curious about cannabis in Rhode Island? Here’s the latest news and what’s available to you:

Does Rhode Island have cannabis dispensaries?

Currently, Rhode Island only has medical marijuana dispensaries. This means that you must possess a Rhode Island medical marijuana card to buy legal cannabis in Rhode Island. Rhode Island’s legislature has voted in favor of adult-use recreational cannabis, but there’s still a long way to go before Rhode Island has its own recreational dispensaries. Luckily, Douglas, Massachusetts, where our recreational dispensary is located, is less than 20 minutes from the RI border.


Can Rhode Island residents buy weed from a Massachusetts recreational dispensary?

Yes, Rhode Islanders are welcome to visit and purchase from a Massachusetts dispensary. Under Massachusetts law, anyone 21 and over with valid government-issued ID is allowed to purchase cannabis products in the state.

This is a good place to note that cannabis you purchase in Massachusetts has to stay in Massachusetts. Federal law still prohibits the sale of marijuana, and crossing state lines with it can lead to fines or possibly even jail time. So, stay safe and enjoy all we have to offer during your visit to Mass.!
