In this section we try to address all your questions regarding the process of referring your patients to B & B Medical Marijuana Evaluation Center.
Does my patient qualify for Rhode Island’s Medical Marijuana Program?
Only patients who are legal Rhode Island residents and have been diagnosed with one of these qualifying conditions are eligible to receive medical cannabis in Rhode Island.
How do I refer a patient to B & B?
To send a referral please fill out our Physician Referral Form and fax along with the last 6-months of your patient's medical records, including any imaging reports. Patient medical records can be faxed to 401-921-5829.
How long will it take my patient to become licensed?
Once your patient has submitted their completed application with signed practitioner paperwork to the Rhode Island Department of Health, it will go through a review process that can take anywhere between 2 and 6 weeks. If your patient has been accepted, they will receive a letter informing them they have been accepted in the MMJ Program and that they will need to go to the RI DOH to have their photo taken for their MMJ I.D. Card.
