As an athlete, innovator, entrepreneur, performer, father, husband, humanitarian, and political activist, to say Barry Blair is an over-achiever is an understatement. Barry’s involvement, both as a medical marijuana caregiver and legislative lobbyist as well as a supportor of RIPAC, demonstrate his ongoing commitment as an advocate for the expansion and increased accessibility of medical marijuana.

Barry’s ambition, character and work ethic were instilled at the early age of 7 when his father “put” him to work at their renowned New England family restaurant “Kid Blair’s Showboat” in Coventry, Rhode Island. Starting from the ground up, Barry took the task of washing floors and dishes, busing tables, cooking, bartending and eventually management duties until a devastating fire took the Showboat shortly after Barry graduated high school.

Barry’s familiarity with success at a young age was bolstered through his athletic achievements. As the 4-time New England Wrestling Champion at Coventry High School and Athlete of the Year (1974) and having won the esteemed Outstanding Athlete Award at the National Wrestling Junior Olympics (chosen out of 800 competitors).

At 18 Barry created, built, and operated “Barry’s, Barry’s, Barry’s” one of the most revered entertainment venues in the US. His infectious personality, resolve for personalized individual customer service and demand for detail kept Barry’s at the forefront of Rhode Island’s highly competitive entertainment industry for 27 years, before closing its doors in 2006.

A graduate of the prestigious School of Film at NYU, Barry’s passion and enthusiasm were also spotlighted in the performing arts. Whether performing on stage at the Tony Award winning Trinity Repertory Theatre in Providence, RI or serving as his friend/director Michael Corrente’s unofficial co-producer and having partially funded “Federal Hill” (1994), voted one of the top 100 all-time wise guy films, Barry’s versatility has served as the roadmap to his many successes.

In 2013, Barry used his transferable and unique skill set to take on the culinary industry, having designed and invented PREP N’ POP. This innovative kitchen tool caught the interest of Lori Greiner (Shark Tank) and went on to sell 200,000 units in just 3 hours of airtime on QVC. View PNP on QVC w Lori Greiner

For many years Barry has been a pivotal supporter of some of Rhode Island’s most respected legislative leaders and serves as a lobbyist to protect both patient and caregiver rights and as a staunch advocate for the legalization of recreational marijuana.

As a humanitarian, Barry’s efforts have been targeted toward fundraising events for numerous charitable organizations, including: Veterans of Foreign War, March of Dimes, and National Cancer Research. Barry is the proud father of Ava Sydney Blair and resides in East Greenwich, RI with his wife, Tamara Wynne Soulliere.

For the past 6 years Barry and his wife Tamara have been helping and healing patients with chronic illnesses by offering quality, pesticide free, medical marijuana, edibles, drinkables, tinctures, RSO and topicals. Together, Barry and his team are registered with the State of Rhode Island Department of Health within the Medical Marijuana Patient-Caregiver Program.

Currently, they operate one of the most sophisticated, state of the art, pharmaceutically sterile private cultivation and processing facilities in the state of Rhode Island. View facility Through RICC’s collaborative efforts, Barry and his team have sought the mentorship and guidance of the industry’s most renowned professionals – many of whom reside in California’s Emerald Triangle – where they have learned their guarded cultivating techniques. These efforts have propelled Barry’s team as pioneers on the forefront of Rhode Island’s thriving cannabis industry.
