What's next for medical marijuana in Hawai'i?

On Jan. 4, 2016, eight new medical marijuana licenses for vendors will be announced.

This follows the state's new interim rules regulating future medical marijuana dispensaries to be built, which were released on Dec. 15. In 2000, Hawai‘i legalized medical marijuana, and patients were allowed to grow their own plants. At that time, medical dispensaries were not permitted. The eight new dispensaries will change these rules.

Hawaii: Medi-Pot For Anxiety, Insomnia?

It took 15 years to evolve from legalizing medical marijuana to allowing dispensaries, but additional changes could come much quicker.

It’s only been three months since Gov. David Ige signed a bill legalizing medical marijuana dispensaries in Hawaii, but lawmakers are already drafting new legislation to amend Act 241.

Potential amendments range from eliminating the ban against interisland transport of medical cannabis to adding new qualifying ailments such as anxiety and insomnia.

Hawaii: Medical marijuana patients must be aware of new rules, state urges

Hawaii’s first system of medical marijuana dispensaries are slated to open next summer, but certain rules adopted this past July are already in effect for current patients and caregivers.

Medical marijuana has been legal in the Islands since 2000.

The patient registry program was transferred earlier this year from the Hawaii Department of Public Safety to the Department of Health.

The health department’s new administrative rules were adopted July 18.

The rules include the mandate of tagging marijuana plants, mandatory possession of registration cards, and additions to the list of medical conditions that make a patient eligible to use cannabis as a medication.
