INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
High Hopes on Hold

 

It’s been 17 years since Hawai‘i’s medical marijuana registry program was first enacted, and two years since the legislature passed a law establishing a statewide dispensary system. After the State Department of Health encountered stumbling blocks in implementing this system, Gov. David Ige signed a bill into law last month to clarify and expand the dispensary system framework. INSIGHTS discusses the challenges in getting dispensaries up and running, and asks: How much longer will patients need to wait?

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
The Road to Medical Marijuana

 

Hawai‘i legalized medical marijuana in 2000, but it’s been a long and bumpy road to establishing a dispensary system. The latest delay came on April 13, with the State Health Department saying it needs more time to access criminal histories of finalists for licenses to grow and sell medical marijuana. In the meantime, patients and caregivers have been growing their own cannabis.
