This is a lawsuit in Superior Court against the state Department of Health (DOH) for making it more difficult for patients with debilitating medical conditions to participate in the state’s medical marijuana program. The suit was brought on behalf of the Rhode Island Patient Advocacy Coalition, the Rhode Island Academy of Physician Assistants, Rhode Island Medical Society, and an individual whose application to participate in the medical marijuana program was denied by the DOH under the new policy.
