Advocates rally for medical marijuana

May 5, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Medical marijuana patients say they did all the right things.

First they got a law allowing the use of marijuana for chronically ill patients, then they went through the legislative process all over again, testifying at even more hearings, to get a law creating compassion centers where they could get their medicine legally, safely and regularly without having to grow it themselves or have someone do it for them.

DeSimone has averaged more than eight goals per outing in nine league games for the Lions in Division II. On Wednesday, it was status quo for the high-scoring attack as she netted 10 scores – all coming in the first half – to lift the unbeaten Lions to a rather routine 22-13 decision over North Providence at Ferguson Field.
