another reporter added: “Since late December, 2000, Hawaii has had a medical marijuana law: ” Governor Ben Cayetano signed Senate Bill 862 into law on June 14, 2000. The law took effect on December 28, 2000. The law removes state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of marijuana by patients who possess a signed statement from their physician affirming that he or she suffers from a debilitating condition and that the “potential benefits of medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the health risks.” Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: cachexia; cancer; chronic pain; Crohn’s disease; epilepsy and other disorders characterized by seizures; glaucoma; HIV or AIDS; multiple sclerosis and other disorders characterized by muscle spasticity; and nausea. Other conditions are subject to approval by the Hawaii Department of Health. Patients (or their primary caregivers) may legally possess no more tha
n one ounce of usable marijuana, and may cultivate no more than seven marijuana plants, of which no more than three may be mature. The law establishes a mandatory, confidential state-run patient registry that issues identification cards to qualifying patients. To date, approximately 2,600 cards have been issued to registered patients.
AMENDMENTS: No, although Hawaii has a separate statute allowing patients arrested on marijuana charges to present a “choice of evils” defense arguing that their use of marijuana is medically necessary.
Law enforcement: Don’t light up in front of the cops and just keep a safe sound head about it and you will enjoy your stay on our beautiful islands.
Where to buy marijuana in Maui: Iao Valley State park. Most days of the week there are usually beach bums and hippies hanging out in the parking lot, blasting reggae. Just approach them, tell them how much you’re willing to pay, and walk out with some very nice bud. Nice guys to deal with, very willing to sell to tourists.
Another reporter added: “paia a little town where all the hippies live on the north side of island on the way to hana. Lots of smoke shops and jamicans walking around with afro colored sweater caps?? use low voice in the smoke shop when asking and they will point you to somone who knows someone else. Kind of paranoid transaction but stay calm. Maybe it was too early in the day (noon)? ”
Marijuana prices in Maui: $50usd for two 3/4″ balls of high-quality bud.
Strains: alot of mainland cali stuff imported but if you find the killas trust me its worth it
More information: maui locals are mostly relaxed so just go with the flow (don’t get in a hurry).
