Providence --  Two state legislators met with Governor Chafee on Tuesday for an update on the state’s plans to license three compassion centers to sell marijuana to patients in the state medical-marijuana program.Sen. Rhoda E. Perry and Rep. Scott A. Slater, both Providence Democrats, emerged from Chafee’s office following a 15-minute meeting in the State House. They felt that Chafee was supportive of the program to provide medical marijuana to those suffering from chronic pain and other illnesses, but the governor wants to make sure that the state doesn’t make a wrong move and subject the dispensary owners and investors to federal prosecution.
Slater and Perry want to get clarification on the risks from Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse.“We don’t know anything,” Perry said. “We really need to get more information from the senator.”The legislators met with Chafee for the first time since Peter F. Neronha, U.S. Attorney for Rhode Island, sent a letter to the governor’s office on April 27, saying that he might prosecute or take civil action against the centers and anyone affiliated with them. Neronha’s letter came just a few weeks after the state Department of Health announced that it had selected three dispensaries to sell medical marijuana in the state.In response to Neronha’s threat, Chafee “placed a hold” on the dispensary program.Similar missives were issued in several of the other 15 states that permit medical marijuana and have established, or are considering establishing dispensaries.
