Rhode Island Opens Application for New Medical Cannabis Dispensary Licenses


The Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation will start accepting applications July 17 for six new medical cannabis dispensary licenses, according to a Providence Journal report.

The application period will be open through Dec. 15, the news outlet reported, and new licensees will be chosen through a lottery, although a date has not been set for awarding the licenses.

“We’re going to have more information about the process once we have the chance to access the volume [of applicants],” Department of Business Regulation Director Pamela Toro told the Providence Journal. “Maybe the beginning of the year.”

The six additional retailers muse be located in six specific regions per state law, according to the news outlet, and likely won’t be operational until the end of 2021.
