Normal treatments for my friend's condition (SLE) have not been successful and he has learned recently that he can benefit from marijuana use. He does not live in a state where medicinal marijuana is legal, but he is within reasonable driving distance of Rhode Island where it is legal. However, he is having troubling figuring out if medicinal marijuana can be purchased from vendors in Rhode Island with a prescription or if the law simply allows people to have it if they have a prescription. He is also wondering if he can be prescribed it by visting a doctor in Rhode Island, even if he lives out of state. He thinks he could get this information from a Rhode Island doctor who prescribes it, but does not know how to find one.
