Hawaii marijuana group proposes reform
HONOLULU ó A medical marijuana group is recommending Hawaii pass laws making it easier for patients to get the drug and to increase the number of marijuana plants they can grow.
The Medical Cannabis Working Group outlined its suggestions at the state Capitol on Thursday.
The groupís report says patients need a way to get marijuana so they donít have to resort to the black market. It also proposes that caregivers be designated to provide marijuana to patients.
The Medical Cannabis Working Group was formed by medical marijuana advocates in October after Gov. Linda Lingle said the state couldnít afford to fund a task force passed into law over her objections.
It is made up of medical professionals, patients and caregivers.
