Thursday, April 9, 8:00 pm

How Can the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands Better Serve Its Beneficiaries? (image) Since Hawaii approved marijuana for medical treatment 15 years ago, other states have surged ahead with dispensaries, and in some cases, marijuana decriminalization.

Mahealani Richardson moderates a talk with reps from advocacy groups, a drug policy organization and the Attorney General's office.
