Getting to Know Metrc in Rhode Island

Rhode Island’s Office of Cannabis Regulation (OCR) is responsible for the licensing and regulation of all commercial cannabis activity across the state. As of November 1, 2022, Metrc officially went live in Rhode Island. It’s now a mandatory requirement for all licensees and applies to all cannabis products being cultivates, manufactured, transported, tested or sold.

An early adopter, the state legalized medical marijuana in 2006 via the Edward O. Hawkins and Thomas C. Slater Medical Marijuana Act. Far more recently, May of 2022 saw the Rhode Island Cannabis Act signed. As of December 2022, this allows for the personal use and licensed sale of cannabis to adults across the state.
