PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - Rhode Island lawmakers may soon take up a bill that would legalize marijuana for recreational use.
The Huffington Post reports State Representative Edith Ajello is working on a bill similar to the laws recently passed by voters in Colorado and in Washington State.
Rhode Island already allows medical marijuana.
Using marijuana for recreational purposes is still illegal under federal law.
