State Legalizes Cannabis and Uses Tax Revenue to Fill Pot Holes


PROVIDENCE – Ganja lovers across the state rejoiced today as Governor Gina Raimondo announced that, starting immediately, the sale and recreational use of cannabis would be legal throughout the state of Rhode Island. The decision was made after the state had long struggled to find a source of revenue to repair the states’ deteriorating infrastructure, in particular pot holes, which residents had taken to filling in with their own preferred puff-able plant.

The state’s government got the message loud and clear when residents flocked to the newly opened dispensaries and the money began pouring in. As the population rocked the doob, contractors across the state went to work fixing the potholes with that black sticky-icky. As part of the same wave of budding reconstruction, the first bridge made from Marijuana tax revenue, dubbed “The Gateway,” will begin construction whenever.
