Step 2

Consult With An MMJ Doctor

The consultation with a doctor for 15 minutes will allow you to analyze your ailments, and you will be able to ask any questions you may have regarding medical marijuana treatment. The doctor will then fill out a recommendation form for you to qualify for the medical marijuana card, and you will be approved for the card once the appointment is complete. 

This will allow you to apply to the state once you have it.

Step 3

Get Approved

After the doctor approves your application, they will mail you a Practitioner Form, your written recommendation for medical marijuana. To apply for residency in Rhode Island, you must submit this form, the state fee, and the required documents.


Upon receiving your medical cannabis card application, the state will ask you to come in and take a picture of yourself within 14 days of receiving it. The card is given to you right then and there. After you receive your marijuana card, you can visit a dispensary and start buying marijuana legally once you have obtained it.


The Rhode Island State Department of Health requires that all patients be recertified annually by a licensed physician. If your certification is close to expiration, KIF will contact you to assist you with setting up a consultation for your certification renewal as soon as possible.

About Cannabis in Rhode Island

American for Safe Access (ASA) gave its statewide medical cannabis program a C+ rating. There is much that Little Rhody could do to improve the quality of the lives of the 17,994 citizens who rely on the state for medical treatment. ASA graded the website according to the following criteria: patient rights and civil protection, clarity of navigation, access to medicine, and functionality. Since 2006, Rhode Island has had a medical cannabis program that has been in effect since it became legal. Two concerns must be addressed in 2021 - the high price of medical cannabis and the discrimination perpetrated against the state employees who request medical cannabis.

Even though Rhode Island is working out its kinks, if the New England state takes some suggestions, the C+ rating could be upgraded to a B if it implements them. According to ASA, a Washington-based organization, in 2020, the state added six new licenses to increase the number of licensed retailers to improve patient access to these products.

Several other states have attempted to provide cannabis retail facilities under state control in past years. Still, they have not been successful due to a conflict between federal and state cannabis laws, which has forced them to abandon these proposals in 2020."

According to the Rhode Island Monthly, there has been a shift in the state's recreational cannabis attitude based on political opinion over the past few weeks. It is important to keep in mind that numbers do not discriminate, regardless of whom you are.

Caregivers in Rhode Island

Registered caregivers are licensed to assist patients in purchasing and using medical cannabis. Medical cannabis can only be purchased and administered to patients by Illinois caregivers at least 21 years old. Driver's licenses and state identification cards are also required to prove residency for the caregiver. Providing fingerprints is also a requirement for caregivers to prove they haven't committed a crime. As a final step, caregivers must submit a photo with the application, which will cost $75 if the application is submitted with a patient or $100 if it is not.

To receive compensation for their services, registered caregivers may only serve one (1) patient at a time and are not allowed to get paid.

Benefits of medical marijuana card in Rhode Island

It may be cheaper to buy medical marijuana.

There is a good possibility that patients with medical marijuana cards in Rhode Island will spend less than recreational marijuana users. Why is that? Purchasing recreational cannabis is subject to a 13% sales tax, whereas medical marijuana sales are subject to a 7% sales tax.

This results in adult-use purchases being more expensive as a consequence. In addition, you will likely spend thousands more if you buy cannabis regularly than if you qualify for the state's medical marijuana program.
