Hawaii Lawmakers to Consider Legalizing Medical Cannabis Dispensaries

During the opening ceremony of the Hawaii Legislature earlier this week, the state’s Speaker of the House Joe Souki announced that he’s in support of legalizing medical cannabis dispensaries, stating that medical-cannabisthe lack of locations for patients to buy cannabis is a “gap in the law”, and that the matter is a humanitarian issue.

Currently in Hawaii it’s legal for qualified patients to possess and use cannabis, as well as cultivate up to 7 plants; dispensaries are illegal, however, leaving patients who don’t grow their own to rely on the black-market for their medicine.

Souki says that a proposal will be discussed soon in the state’s legislature which would explicitly legalize dispensaries throughout the state.
