HAWAII: Hawaii’s medical marijuana laws have created a kind of Catch-22 for patients. They can use it legally, but they can’t buy it legally.
That could soon change.
The Medical Marijuana Dispensary Task Force has finished its work and recommended that the state establish dispensaries to make it easier for patients with certain conditions like cancer, glaucoma and HIV, among others, to get the drug legally.
In the District of Columbia, Guam and 22 other states, marijuana is allowed for medical use. In most of those states, there is a dispensary where you can buy pot.
