WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island’s third and final medical marijuana dispensary is set to open.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1z1QfBB ) that the Warwick dispensary comes about a year and a half after the first two dispensaries opened, in spring 2013.

The other two are in Providence and Portsmouth.

Projections for Summit Medical Compassion Center, which is set to open Monday, have been scaled back from plans three years ago. Initially, the dispensary planned on having 8,000 customers in three years. Backers now believe it’ll draw 600 patients in the first six months; 1,105 after the first year; and 1,610 after the second year.

Rhode Island is one of 23 states and the District of Columbia that allows the state-regulated sale of medical marijuana.
