CANNABIS IN HAWAII:
Since the year 2000, Hawaii Legislators created the Medical Use of Marijuana Program. Qualifying conditions include: cancer, glaucoma, HIV (+) status, chronic or debilitating disease: Severe pain, severe nausea, seizures (epilepsy), severe & persistent muscle spasms (from Multiple Sclerosis or Crohn’s Disease), severe weakness, malnutrition or weight loss. Effective January 1, 2015, the Hawaii’s Medical Use of Marijuana Program was transferred from the Department of Public Safety to the Department of Health, according to Act 177. The state’s Department of Health will develop administrative rules, including licensing application criteria and regulations, for a medical marijuana dispensary system. Applications will be accepted beginning early 2016. Hawaii has issued eight dispensary licenses and these owners may begin selling medical Cannabis to registered patients soon, according to the Department of Health.
