Marijuana Arrest and Defense in Rhode Island
Law enforcement arrests more people for marijuana offenses in Rhode Island than for any other drug. In fact, the Providence Journal reported that Rhode Islanders use more marijuana than anywhere else in the country. Twenty percent of people in Rhode Island said they used marijuana in the last year. Holding a joint (a marijuana cigarette) is considered possession. This means one in five people could face a marijuana arrest every year!
