Hawaii is one of 23 states that allows the use of medical marijuana. 

On January 1st, control of the state medical marijuana system will be changing from the Department of Public Safety to the Department of Health.  But patients whose registrations expire this month are urged to reapply by December 12th to avoid any lapse in coverage.  Applicants must still obtain a signed physician’s statement before applying.  Scotty Ruis is the project coordinator for the State Medical Marijuana program.
