Rhode Island’s first adult-use marijuana sales launched on Thursday, with five dispensaries serving consumers 21 and older. Gov. Dan McKee (D) and the state Department of Business Regulation (DBR) announced last week that the “hybrid” medical-recreational shops would be opening at the start of the month. The governor signed legalization into law in May. #WATCH: Recreational marijuana is officially for sale in Rhode Island and 12 News was able to see the first purchase!
