Patients Without time

Legalize Marijuana in Hawai'i - 2016!

Stop the corporate monopoly

 


Marijuana dispensaries may open as soon as July in 2016. Unfortunately, currently there is still no legal way to acquire medical marijuana in Hawai'i. You must find someone to give you marijuana seeds, clones, or plants to begin growing. Most patients still 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, sales, or possession is still against federal law.

 

Hawai'i's new Marijuana Dispensary bill targets seriously ill medical marijuana patients by placing millions of dollars of infrastructure, fees, and taxes on Hawai’i’s 13,000 registered medical marijuana patients. Meanwhile, the Hawai'i lawmakers completely ignore Hawai'i's billion-dollar-a-year of sales in illegal recreational marijuana.

 

There is a better way. Legalization of marijuana would create thousands of businesses, raise substantial revenue, and finally grant patients safe access to an adequate supply of their medication. Polls show that over 50 percent of Hawai'i's citizens think marijuana should be legal. Folks are becoming educated to the real health benefits of medical marijuana, and the mainstream media reports new medical breakthroughs everyday.

"Helping medical marijuana patients acquire safe access to an adequate supply of their medicine is a "calling," not a crime."

 

Our 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).

 

Mahalo Nui, for the support you've shown Director Brian Murphy in your letters, petition with over 11,000 signatures, demonstrations, and the booth at the Earth Day festival! Director Murphy was released from the Maui jail on May 7, 2015! We welcome him back to work helping medical marijuana patients gain safe access to their medical marijuana.

Some 13,000 people use medical marijuana here, but there's still no way for patients to legally buy pot. KITV 4, June 24, 3014.

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.

 

Hawaii legislature congratulates PWT!

The 2009 Hawai'i State House of Representatives congratulated PWT for doing the same thing that the State of Hawai'i sent Director Murphy to jail for doing:.
