RI Senate approves medical marijuana bill

RI Senate approves medical marijuana bill
June 8, 2005 - abc6.com

The Rhode Island state Senate has approved a medical marijuana bill.

Senate lawmakers approved the measure 34 to two yesterday.

If it becomes law, it will shield medical marijuana users and their caregivers from prosecution under state law.

The Senate bill allows those licensed by the state as medical marijuana users to possess up to twelve marijuana plants or two and a half ounces of usable marijuana.

The vote came a day after the U-S Supreme Court ruled that people who use marijuana for medical purposes can still be prosecuted under federal law.

Governor Carcieri has said he'll veto the bill if it passes both chambers.

His spokesman says if the state permits medical marijuana use, it will be setting citizens up for federal prosecution.
