Slater Center FAQS


I’ve never been to a cannabis dispensary before. What should I expect?

There’s no need to be nervous – we’re here for you every step of the way.

When you arrive, attendants will direct you as to where to park in our secure fenced parking lot. Inside the dispensary, there are separate areas for medical patients and recreational customers (adults 21+) to place and receive their orders. 

You’ll find our dispensary is a warm, inviting place, tastefully decorated with comfortable chairs and couches, beautiful display cases and separate areas for private patient consultations. Our friendly and knowledgeable employees will help you select and purchase the cannabis flower and products that are best suited to your needs. We also have security inside and outside the building, for everyone’s safety.

Is my patient's privacy protected?

Absolutely. We abide by all Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements for patient confidentiality.

Can someone else purchase medicine for me?

A designated caregiver or authorized purchaser can buy medicine for a registered patient. In fact, many patients find this a convenient way to get their medicine, especially when they are not able to come to the center.

Recreational customers are not allowed to make purchases for anyone other than themselves.

I am a medical patient. Can a family member or friend accompany me?

Yes - as long as they are over 21.

The State of Rhode Island also allows each registered Medical Marijuana Patient to designate one Caregiver and one Authorized Purchaser. You must complete an application for either/both within the Instructions and Application for Initial Registration as a Medical Marijuana Patient* on the Rhode Island Department of Health website.

* NOTE: You don’t need to designate a caregiver or authorized purchaser when you initially apply – you can add them at any time.

How much cannabis can I get?

Under state law, medical patients can receive no more than 2.5 ounces (70 grams) of usable cannabis or its equivalent to a qualifying patient or his/her caregiver or authorized purchaser during a 15-day period.

Recreational customers (adults 21+) are limited to one ounce per purchase.

Does the Slater Center offer any discounts?

Our medical patients receive 20% off their first orders. Medical patients who qualify for low-income, senior citizen and military discounts also receive 10% off all orders.  We also offer daily specials and other sales for all of our patients and recreational customers. See our menu for details.
