Hawaii Considers Marijuana Dispensary

May 05, 2011  | 

Hawaii's lawmakers are considering a medical marijuana dispensary as a pilot program in a state that has already legalized the drug for chronic pain and other ailments.

The state is also considering more strictly limiting authorized ailments for medical marijuana to patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, cancer, HIV/AIDS or glaucoma.

The bulk of residents now certified to use medical marijuana are in their 20s and 30s, and most of them cite severe pain as their medical condition, Keith Kamita, deputy director of public safety for law enforcement, tells the Honolulu Star Advertiser.

The state's DPS has issued blue cards to more than 8,000 medical marijuana users compared with 255 in the 2001, the first year of the program.
