Rhode Island may Legalise Cannabis Sales to Chronically Ill

The Associated Press is reporting that Rhode Island may soon allow non-profit businesses to sell Cannabis to chronically ill patients:

The bills would allow so-called "compassion centers" to sell up to 2.5 ounces of the drug every 15 days to a patient or his caregiver if they are enrolled in an existing medical marijuana program overseen by the state Health Department. Rhode Island became the eleventh state in the country in 2006 to legalize marijuana for medical purposes, although the drug remains illegal under federal law.
This is probably a smart move considering that even though Cannabis is legal in the State for medicinal purposes, it is still illegal to deal there.
