The 3 Best Dispensaries in Rhode Island

Ever since Rhode Island legalized medicinal cannabis in 2006, the state has had a number of dispensaries pop up. That number is exactly three. While that might not seem like a lot, it probably shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the country’s smallest state would have a limited number of dispensaries. So which are the best dispensaries in Rhode Island?

Usually we’d make a list of our favorites, but in this case due to the limited numbers, we figure we might as well share a little bit about all of Rhode Island’s dispensaries.

Lawmakers in Quebec failed to pass a bill that would have increased the minimum age for purchasing and consuming cannabis from 18 to 21 before the end of the legislative session. When the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) was elected to power in Quebec last year, they brought with them a promise to raise the legal age for buying and consuming recreational cannabis. Right now, anyone 18 or older can legally purchase cannabis in Quebec, which is tied with Alberta for having the lowest legal age for recreational cannabis.
