WARREN, R.I. (WLNE) — The Warren Town Council is scheduled to vote on a proposed ban of public pot smoking on Tuesday night.

The recreational use of marijuana was legalized in the Ocean State back in May.

If Tuesday’s vote passes Warren would be the first town in Rhode Island to ban smoking cannabis in public.

The proposal classifies public places as streets, parking lots, parks, and athletic centers.

Tuesday’s meeting is slated for 7 p.m.
