Honolulu, HI, Hawaii
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2-4.5 Depending on area
Legislation: Marijuana is illegal to posess and use in Hawaii, however it is possible to recieve a medical marijuana license from a doctor.
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.
another reporter added: “Cops WILL bust you for even the smallest amount of bud! Don’t smoke in Waikiki, head towards diamond head makai side to blaze.”
Where to buy marijuana in Honolulu: Tourists will always get ripped off, no matter what. Hookers DO NOT sell bud in Waikiki (they make more than enough money already). Locals are the ones who are out to rip you. Your best bet might be some local haoles (for those who don’t know, white people) like me who have lived here for some time. Cruise by local shops on Kuhio Ave and ask around, don’t be too blatant. NEVER ask for bud in the smoke shops (like Smokeys) cause that will only get you in deep trouble (and most likely your ass kicked)
another report we have is: “you gotta know someone cuz the locals are such biggots. they have lots of weed growing in the mountains north of waikiki. great weed that’s grown for miles in the mountain valley. i couldn’t believe it when i went hiking, it was like i was moses and i came across the promised land, however its untouchable because there are all sorts of people who patrol the area to make sure their crop isn’t stolen.”
Marijuana prices in Honolulu: Cheapest I’ve paid for an ounce is $340. Its some of the best bud I’ve seen in my life and nothing compares to it on the east coast. I’d pay $500 for a zip of haze in beantown which was good, but nothing compares to the buds grown in hawaii. Eighths will run you $50 for ok bud, $60-70 for really good bud, and $100+ for purple, kush etc.
Strains: Looking to smoke some Maui Wowi? Keep looking…. its impossible to find anywhere bud Maui and if someone says it is “Maui Wowi” it most likely isnt. The buds we pick up are hairy and dark, a lot of purple in it but not considered “purple haze” Nobody uses the terms “heddies, headies, heddys” here so don’t be asking for that. Most people don’t even know what kind of bud it is but you can tell if its overgrown, indoor/outdoor etc. You can also tell if it was shipped depending on how compressed the buds are. Buds grown in hawaii will be dank and fluffy. You can’t find KB (kind bud) in Hawaii because that shits garbage compares to what we smoke. Merch (commercial) is nowhere to be found either.
More information: I love living in Hawaii because we smoke the best buds around the world. Some other interesting things I’ve heard if bud being shipped from Oregon and Cali and that stuff is really good. Also, you might buy bud off locals that looks like the most crip shit ever, but its the fake ass shit you buy online (which is actually produced on Oahu), but when you smoke it it tastes like shit and don’t get you high, POOP! Just keep blazin da paka braddah gonna make u lolo! -Kawika
