Improper use of medical marijuana could be a major problem

In Rhode Island, medical marijuana is available to certain individuals who have specific medical conditions. The use of this drug is thought to help alleviate some of the symptoms associated with various diseases and disorders. In order to lawfully have medical marijuana, a person must have a prescription from a doctor and a qualifying medical condition.

Rhode Island and the outlook of cocaine laws

As America has recently seen a shift in views toward marijuana, views regarding cocaine remain largely the same. Although common and easily accessible in the state of Rhode Island, cocaine generally has a negative reputation, with its high connection to other crimes. However, it is important to know the variety of factors that can determine the severity of a case, including the quantity of the drug, the type of cocaine and past criminal records.

Oftentimes, pressing situations can tempt drivers to accelerate at speeds well beyond posted speed limits.
