If you are a patient with an out of state card, the state of RI is looking to change the rules for buying your medicine. A proposed new rule would require you to show a second form of ID from the state where you received your recommendation. So if your recommendation is from CA, you would need to show a second form of ID at a compassion center from CA. If you want to voice your opposition to this proposed change, there is a meeting this FRIDAY, December 6th at 11am at Rhode Island College (Gaige Hall), 600 Mt. Pleasant Avenue in Providence. This public hearing will allow anyone to voice their opposition to the proposal. Patients are encouraged to attend this meeting to speak up for their rights to purchase medicine.
