Woody Harrelson and Tetris Producer Henk Rogers Apply for Dispensary Licenses in Hawaii

woody harrelsonActor Woody Harrelson (Cheers, Zombieland) is one of 66 applicants attempting to receive a license from the Hawaii Department of Health to legally operate medical cannabis cultivation centers and dispensaries in the state. Henk Rogers, famous for distributing the video game Tetris as founder of The Tetris Company, is also one of the applicants.

In Hawaii, thanks to a law passed last year, medical cannabis dispensaries and cultivation centers are legal, with eight licenses to be distributed by the state. Each license will allow for the opening of two cultivation centers and two dispensaries, equaling 16 each across the state (six in Oahu, four on Hawaii Island, four on Maui and two on Kauai).

In order to apply for a license, applicants must have $1 million cash plus $100,000 for each dispensary location, and must be a Hawaii residents for more than five years.

Harrelson, 54, applied for a license in Honolulu County under the name Simple Organic Living. Rogers is applying under the name Blue Planet Foundation.

Dispensaries are set to open in July, with licenses to be distributed by April.

    Please Mr Munson; help a Manson in Ohio (I’m not Amish, or a bowler but we really need some funding for the campaign that was competing last year for signatures against the monopoly law. We’re at 1/4 of the signatures and spent under $2200 drafting and printing petitions.) We could really use a big name supporter and the assholes from last year are trying again and again until they break us otherwise. Legalizeohio2016.org to view the amendment text or to donate. We’re trying to draft against the1%’rs plan for medical and recreational with hemp for anyone who has $5k for a standard business license. Colorado would be jealous of US finally too. Thank you for your time and congratulations on your progress so far in Hawaii.
