Compassion RI


We are a group of Brown University graduates committed to realizing progressive and common sense change for Rhode Island. In short, we have applied for licensure to operate a medical marijuana dispensary in Rhode Island, because we feel we are best positioned to bring about a positive solution for the community.

Our reasoning is that many of the applications submitted (21 or so for a maximum of 3 licenses) are put forth by individuals with motivations at odds with those of the community. For us, the goal is to operate a self sufficient, non-profit dispensary that is proactive in developing a strong partnership with State Regulators and the potential market we could serve.

So why turn to crowd funding? Great question. By leveraging social media platforms, we feel we can more effectively connect with the local community in the best interest of transparency, regulator relationships, and customer service.

We are confident that our organization can serve as a vehicle for a common sense solution for Rhode Island, and we hope you can bring your support and join us for the ride.

Final application decision will be made by the State in March, 2011. Until then, please show your support by following us on Twitter (@compassionrhody), friending us on Facebook(Compassion RI), and spreading the word about our noble efforts. Stay tuned in the weeks ahead as we commence an effort to fund the startup costs of our non-profit dispensary with donations from the compassionate community.
