Hawaii Changes Medical Marijuana Program To Improve Access

It includes the ability for any medical cannabis patient stateside to purchase in Hawaii

A new law will soon bring major enhancements to Hawaii’s medical marijuana program.

Starting next year, medical marijuana patients from the continental United States will be able to buy medical cannabis at Hawaii dispensaries. All they’ll need is a Hawaii registration card that will set them back $45 and be valid for 60 days.

“It’ll be available to them to take to dispensaries to show they are registered patients for purchase and for possession of medical cannabis,” said Peter Whitacar, chief of the Department of Health’s Harm Reduction Branch.

Health officials forecast about 5,000 visitors will get the cards in the first year, with the potential for up to 30,000 to obtain them annually.
