Medical cannabis program is expanding

Local News

Hawaii’s medical cannabis program is expanding to give those visiting from out-of-state the chance to obtain marijuana for medical purposes.

The new system allows people from other states to register for a cannabis card prior to arriving in Hawaii.

Currently medical cannabis is legal in more than 30 states.

The Department of Health says the change allows patients the opportunity to get what they need right here in Hawaii.
