    Comments

    “We know that marijuana can provide relief for patients suffering from serious illnesses,” Whitehouse told GoLocal. “I applaud Rhode Island’s effort to make it available for that purpose. As Rhode Island and other states implement their laws, they will benefit from clear federal guidance regarding national law-enforcement priorities. To that end, I am pleased that the Department of Justice has committed to working with states to eliminate legal uncertainty and to prevent unnecessary litigation over state laws.” 9/12/2013 (Link)
    Added Senator Whitehouse, “As a former prosecutor, I’m keenly aware of the damage drugs cause in our communities, but I’ve also seen how commonsense reforms can benefit both drug offenders and their families. In Rhode Island, we’ve seen how drug courts for low-level offenders can help addicts get the treatment they need while also reducing the burden on our prison system. At the federal level, I’ve encouraged broader use of drug courts, and I’m pleased that the Senate is considering smarter sentencing policies and more effective re-entry programs. I look forward to discussing these important issues.” 10/9/2013 (Link)
