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.

Awesome; professional; helpful; and fun staff. The selection is Awesome! Great Prices and surprise deals daily. I am very thankful for the Center’s help and every one making the action happen. All I have to say is great compliments. Some staff members know me by name and some Staff members I know by name and more to learn. Overall 10 stars 😎 Thank you 🙏! Now open on Sundays and staff is very knowledgeable! E
I was just reading over the negative reviews and there seems like a bunch of hyperbole was used. Yes I agree the staff could be much friendlier and they seem to get aggravated if you take your time. But with that said the facility is nice but the ticket system is too chaotic. The product is always at minimum decent and often good and the deal of the day is always appreciated when funds are especially when it’s 50$ quarters on all strains. TCS is definitely not the best in RI however it is much better than the reviews make it out to be
Since the last two reviews were pretty bad (but for some reason the people writing the reviews gave 5 stars on each category) I figured I’d even the scale. Apparently your dispensary sucks and people should know.
They are in house testing ,,,but I think not even that ,,, buy your tester ,,,, doesn’t add up ,,, I mean do you think they would lie ??? And they only pay 160 a oz to growers ,,,, but considering,,,,what they charge and they are non profit mind you .....at least other two dispensary’s don’t lie on the thc percentages and prices are fairer
They way I was treated ,,, and they do caller Id ...if they dont want to speak to you they hang up ,,, class act ,,, security are like dumb and dumber in the Parking lot ....Slater has gone downhill,, when I had patients and I brought them in ,,, once laws changed ...we all just marks ,,, check out the other two dispensary’s ,, much fairer ,,, and no wanna be police ,, Slater is like going to a crack den ,,, that’s about how much respect you will get ,,,, I have all my patients off slayer ,,, between 10 and 15 folks ,,, you go a timeor two ,, then leave post,,
Yeah comfortable sitting area waiting area semi knowledgeable staff. Prices there something for everybody here no matter how much you make ..
very easy to get tooo. So stop by the TcS and see why everybody going there ...
Usually tier 2 is really good but don’t get caught up on there grading system i get some really good bud from the daily sale or tier 3 have fun medicating
its awsome to buy weed at the store fun times can't wait for more stuff and stores
This place is horrible from pricing to flavor choices. Don’t understand why they don’t put people in charge that know what they are doing ! This has been such a disappointment

TCS is a nightmare of a compassion center. They don't use 3rd party analytics (it's all in-house trickery), so what you see for THC and CBD content is nothing short of lies. Their prices are ridiculous.... Their product is GARBAGE.... and more importantly.... Their products are contaminated with mold and mildew! YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!!!
