IMPORTANT NEWS

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RI CANNABIS PATIENTS: There are proposed changes to the MMJ program in RI that would add taxes to patients and caregivers who are growing medicine. For patients they are proposing 150 dollars – PER PLANT. The charge for caregivers is more than double that. This is a way for our state to get back tax dollars by taxing the sick for a medicine they rely on to function. You can read about it here http://ripr.org/post/new-tax-marijuana-plants and here: http://ripatients.org/

To stay up to date on the changes and what YOU can do to stop this from becoming our reality please follow RIPAC for the latest information. We do not pay taxes on our pharmacy medications and we should not be paying taxes on the medicine we grow in our homes!

WE ALSO HAVE A MEETING THIS WEEKEND FEBRUARY 6TH 2PM SMALL ROOM – WARWICK PUBLIC LIBRARY ON SANDY LANE.
