Regulate Rhode Island and Legislative Allies Propose 'Incremental Legalization' as Compromise
Sen. Joshua Miller, Rep. Scott Slater, and Regulate Rhode Island announce a proposal to legalize possession of small amounts of marijuana on July 1, 2018 and establish an advisory board to provide recommendations to the General Assembly on regulating sales and cultivation

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - June 8, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Regulate Rhode Island and allied legislators are announcing a new proposal they call "incremental legalization." Specifically, the compromise legislation would:
  • legalize possession of an ounce or less for adults 21 and older on July 1, 2018 when marijuana retail stores are scheduled to open in Massachusetts; and
  • establish a six-person advisory board comprised of two state officials selected by the governor, two state senators, and two state representatives to study outcomes of legalization in other states and issue a report by January 1, 2018 with recommendations for the General Assembly on how to establish a system for taxing and regulating marijuana in Rhode Island.
Sen. Joshua Miller (D-Cranston) and Rep. Scott Slater (D-Providence) are prepared to amend their legalization bills (S 0420 and H 5555) to reflect these changes.
