State of the State RI

Guests: Michael Cerullo, What’s The Rush, RI? whatstherush-ri.org
Tammy Duxbury, Councilwoman, Coventry Town Council
Host: Rebecca Quigley
The complexity and effects of legalizing marijuana use and growing hemp are discussed from different perspectives. Cerullo advises that we should learn from the states where marijuana has been legalized before Rhode Island takes a similar action as significant problems have arisen, among which is the increased use among adolescents. Duxbury is concerned that the proposed law that would permit the growing of hemp is at odds with local zoning laws and threatens local authority and sovereignty. Both advise caution and getting it right first with regulating the medicinal use of marijuana.
