Compassion Centers are places for patients that have qualifying conditions to obtain medical marijuana as allowed by Rhode Island law. Three compassion centers, Thomas C. Slater, Summit and Greenleaf were initially approved to be licensed by the Department. The Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center in Providence and Greenleaf Compassionate Care in Portsmouth are licensed and currently operating. The Summit Medical Compassion Center is in the process of applying for their operating license.
The Department of Health will notify the public of any significant changes to any compassion center's application license and/or conditions of licensing.
Please refer Inquires regarding the licensing of a compassion center to the Office of Facilities Regulation at OFR@health.ri.gov or call 401-222-2566.
Summit Compassion Center submitted proposed changes. Public comments are welcome until December 13, 2013. (Please note this is an extended date.)
