About Us

Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center


When the Slater Center opened its doors as the first medical cannabis dispensary in Rhode Island in 2013, our mission was to provide safe, dignified and affordable access to medical cannabis for all approved patients. We now also offer a wide assortment of top-quality cannabis for adult recreational users over age 21.



The founder of Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center was inspired to found the center because of his grandmother’s painful battle with cancer, where she may have found relief from her suffering and pain had she been legally able to use medical cannabis. His grandmother’s case coupled with many other personal acquaintances suffering from a myriad of illnesses and conditions which could find relief in medical marijuana and combined with his work as a caregiver. These instances all culminated in his choice to found a center where patients like his friends and family could receive their cannabis medicine in an accessible and safe place. In April 2013, the Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center became the first dispensary in Rhode Island, and since has helped patients in Providence and across the state safely access medical marijuana and improve their overall quality of life.



The compassionate team of the Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center in Providence strives to live up to its dispensary’s namesake. Our staff cares deeply about our patients, advocating for their medical marijuana use and taking the time to work with each to find the best cannabis treatment for their conditions. Always aiming above and beyond, our mission is rooted in an unwavering commitment to our patients, offering a welcoming facility and a top-quality medicine to qualified medical cannabis patients from Rhode Island and any other state. We also now serve recreational users, offering a wide array of products carefully selected to exceed expectations.



The Slater Center menu includes a diverse range of flower strains, prerolls, vapes, concentrates, edibles and drinks, sublingual concentrates, topicals and capsules for their patients, striving to meet the diverse needs of our patients and recreational customers. We also offer a variety of ancillary accessories, and our team is more than happy to explain the pros and cons of different medicine types and consumption methods with curious patients. As part of our commitment to the well-being of our patients, the Slater Center tests all plants and products for potency and dosage as well as product safety, ensuring the highest quality medical cannabis.


The Slater Center is proud to offer a compassion program for all qualifying patients, helping those near the end of their lives find the relief they need. They also offer discounts to patients who are seniors, veterans, and qualifying low-income, as we strive to keep their medicine as affordable as possible.
