The governor of Rhode Island announced that the state’s first adult-use cannabis retail sales will begin on December 1.
Gov. Dan McKee (D) and the state Department of Business Regulation (DBR) said that five existing medical cannabis dispensaries have been licensed as “hybrid” retailers that will be the first to serve adults 21 and older.
“This milestone is the result of a carefully executed process to ensure that our state’s entry into this emerging market was done in a safe, controlled, and equitable manner,” McKee said in a press release.
“It is also a win for our statewide economy and our strong, locally based cannabis supply chain, which consists of nearly 70 licensed cultivators, processors, and manufacturers in addition to our licensed compassion centers,” he said, adding that he’s grateful to lawmakers for passing a cannabis legalization bill that he signed in May.
