Hawaii Dispensaries Can Now Serve Out-of-State Cannabis Patients

Traveling to Hawaii just got a whole lot easier for out-of-state medical marijuana patients. The state Department of Health announced this week that Hawaii will now allow visitors who are qualified to receive medical marijuana elsewhere in the US to register and buy it while visiting the islands.

Also announced Tuesday: an online registration system designed to allow qualified patients to quickly obtain an electronic registration card.

The new system allows out-of-state patients to register before arriving in Hawaii, so they can purchase from certified dispensaries once they are in the state, the department said.

“The introduction of Hawaii’s electronic medical cannabis card is a major step in improving access to medical cannabis for qualified patients in Hawaii and out-of-state patients in the 37 other jurisdictions where medical cannabis is allowed,” said Bruce Anderson, director of the state Department of Health.

The jurisdictions that allow medical marijuana include 33 other states, Washington, DC, and four US territories.

For a $49.50 application fee, out-of-state patients can apply for registration up to 60 days before visiting. The state requires applicants to submit an ID and their medical marijuana registration from their home state. [Read more at Leafly]
