    These type places attract the wrong crowd. It’s like a strip club, really. You get some people just looking to have some fun and some people peddling drugs, prostitution, etc.

    I don’t want to bore people with the long list of strip club cons. (And, let me tell you, I LOVE strip clubs :} ).

    As far as these Marijuana “shops” go, would you want to own a piece of property next to one? Give me a break.

    Mr. Kairnes,
    What would you know about these places? You don’t see people who abuse prescription drug loitering outside pharmacies, so why would a “wrong crowd” end up outside a legal medical marijuana dispensary? Stop fear-mongering and stick to the facts, which all say that such places would help people in ways that the pharmaceutical industry can’t. These mega-companies care only about profits and not about cures.

      Ummm…. okay, I’ll support these “Marijuana Heavens”…. but, there can be only 1 licensed one in all of Rhode Island.

      It should be located at the Rhode Island State Police Headquarters barracks.

      People can bring there Marijuana “prescriptions” to RISP Headquarters to be filled.
      Any takers?

      Joe, guy, will you be the first customer, sir?

      I can’t believe my eyes. Your RIGHT!!!Nobody is loitering outside the RISP Headquarters building. How about that…

      Film at 11.

      Class dismissed.
