Hawaii State Health Department Warning: Tag Your Marijuana Plants!

Medical marijuana plants are to be tagged with the patient’s state registration number and expiration date, under rules adopted by the state in July.

Not everyone is aware of the new rules, although the information is being mailed out with annual medical marijuana registration cards and is on the Department of Health’s website, officials said. The Health Department sent out a reminder news release Tuesday.

“My understanding is people are learning about it,” Peter Whiticar, a Health Department branch chief overseeing the program, said in a recent interview. “The word should be getting out.”
