Patients Without time


Any registered patient or caregiver who is designated to grow medical marijuana MUST place on each of their medical marijuana plants, an identification tag that CLEARLY shows their 329 registration number and expiration date. The individual (patient or caregiver) who the qualifying patient has designated in the DOH registration application to cultivate marijuana is RESPONSIBLE to ensure that all plants are tagged. Plants that are not tagged or that are improperly tagged are subject to removal by law enforcement. Click here for the DOH’s tagging guidelines.

The tag MUST meet the DOH guidelines. The tag shall be tied to or encircle the base of each plant and shall be clearly visible on the outside of the plant. The tag MUST meet the DOH guidelines.

Director Murphy talks about Hawai'i's marijuana laws

on the Crossroads show with Lucienne De Naie

Marijuana dispensaries will open as soon as July in 2016 in Hawai'i. Unfortunately, until then there is no legal way to buy medical marijuana in Hawai'i. You must find someone to give you marijuana seeds, clones, or plants, or a caregiver to provide them for you.

Few patients can actually grow their own marijuana, and many, perhaps most, patients buy from the illegal recreational market. Once patients get their marijuana home, Hawai'i law protects them from prosecution by the State of Hawai'i. However, marijuana use, sale, or possession is still against federal law.

There is a better way. Legalization of marijuana would create thousands of legal businesses, raise substantial revenue, and finally grant patients safe access to an adequate supply of their medication.

"Helping medical marijuana patients acquire safe access to an adequate supply of their medicine is a "calling," not a crime." PWT Director Brian Murphy served 5 months of a one year sentence in Maui jail for helping thousands of Hawai'i's registered medical marijuana patients acquire their medicine. Director Murphy was released from jail on May, 7, 2015 (the same day that the dispensary bill was passed).

Patients still can't legally buy pot, 14 years after medical marijuana law took effect, Hawaii News Now, Sept, 27, 2014.

"In 2000, the Legislature enacted the Medical Use of Marijuana law, which has been codified as Part IX of Chapter 329, HRS, the Uniform Controlled Substances Act. The law allows for the possession of medical of marijuana, by qualifying individuals, under certain conditions, and includes fees and registration requirements for medical marijuana patients and their caregivers, but does NOT provide a legal precedure to acquire medical marijuana.
