Similar to actions in California, Colorado and a multitude of others, the U.S. Attorney for the state of Rhode Island, Peter Neronha, has sent warning letters to the landlords of the state's three dispensaries, reports the Associated Press.
Neronha had previously warned that the dispensaries, their landlords or investors could face civil or criminal sanctions, including the seizure of assets or property.
The latest warning was discussed during a meeting between Neronha and Gov. Lincoln Chafee on Tuesday. During the meeting, which was sought by Chafee, Neronha restated that while prosecutors might target large-scale marijuana operations, they don't intend to prosecute ill patients using medicinal marijuana, Martin said.
