Rhode Island Now Accepting Cannabis Compassion Center Applications

Post by Comprehensive Cannabis Consulting Last Updated on July 20, 2020

On July 17, 2020, The Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation (DBR) announced the opening of an application period for six (6) additional compassion center licenses. Completed applications will be accepted through 3:00 PM ET on December 15, 2020. Unlike the current compassion centers, the new ones will be prohibited from cultivating cannabis, though the regulations include possibly seeking a variance to grow once the businesses are operational. The location of the proposed Compassion Centers will need local zoning approval and must meet the required setbacks from schools and other restrictions. The DBR is providing time for applicants to select a location for their proposed Compassion Center and give local governments time to hold public hearings, according to DBR Director Elizabeth Tanner. A $10,000 non-refundable application fee must accompany each application.
