All licensed caregivers and patients are required to have tags on their plants by April 1. So, if you have entered your info on the DBR website but have not heard anything, you are not alone. Do not panic. No one has tags or even hear back from DBR about how to pay for their tags. We are waiting for an official statement from DBR that will put patients and caregivers at ease. We have received many inquiries from cardholders who are experiencing anxiety about the tags. Today is the 22nd so it doesn’t seem possible that all cardholders who applied will actually have their tags by April 1. It is not the fault of patients and caregivers that the tag program is experiencing delays.
To be compliant with the law, if you have not already ordered your tags, you should do so as soon as possible. Go to: http://www.dbr.state.ri.us/divisions/medicalmarijuana/index.php#medtags. Again, if patients and caregivers are following the DBR instructions, delays in the distribution of the tags are not their fault. But it is important, to avoid problems, that patients and caregivers do what we need to do to comply.
