Medical marijuana laws in Hawaii were passed by the state legislature despite opposition from the people.
Hawaii is the only state to have passed medical marijuana laws without voter initiative. Senate Bill 862 HD1 was enacted June 14, 2000.
It is a requirement by law that if you were reccommended medical marijuana by a physician you must register with the state Department of Public Safety before you can legally obtain your medical marijuana.
There is often an application fee of $25 which is non refundable, even if you are denied. Most patients that are denied happens because they incorrectly filled out the application. To prevent this, make sure to fill out all required fields, and have all your Identification cards handy.
For registered medical marijuana patients in Hawaii you shall be exempt from prosecution. You are legal to obtain seven plants, three of which can be mature, having no more than one ounce per mature plant.
In Hawaii the state does not provide any way to legally obtain medical marijuana. You must grow it on your own.
