HAWAII: Meetings will be held this month in Hilo and Pahoa to both provide information and obtain public input on the state’s medical marijuana law.

The events are scheduled for 3-5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25 at the YWCA at 145 Ululani St. in Hilo and from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, at the Pahoa Neighborhood Center at 15-2710 Kauhale St.

The “talk story” sessions are being coordinated by the Drug Policy Action Group and the Medical Cannabis Coalition of Hawaii.
