Medical Marijuana

I need marijuana for medicinal purposes but I'm afraid to take on plane. Is it easy to find there?

I'm not too sure, but are there not rules you may already need to know about travel with it, issues with police, and so on? Maybe Willie will be on island, perhaps?

Medicinal marijuana users on the islands are allowed to grow a little bit for personal use. It is illegal to buy or sell on the street or otherwise.

I suggest you have a long discussion with your prescribing doctor about the in's and outs of out of state travel.

Fireball, most of the weed offered in Lahaina, isn't weed at all! Tourists are such suckers!

There are no dispensaries on any of the islands. I didn't think there were dispensaries in Indiana either. You don't want to try to take it on the plane (or into another state), even if you have a current ID card for it.

There are no reciprocal state-to-state medical marijuana privileges...

You must have a Hawaii "green card" to be covered in the islands.

And you must be a Hawaii resident, with proof of residency, to obtain one.

Plus, it can only be consumed on private property (hotels and other commercial properties are not considered "private property").

Sorry, you are out of luck

And scoring street weed on Maui has been whack since the mid-90s.

"Cops" did an episode in Kihei a few years back and apparently there is no shortage of Marijuana. If you need a specific CBD/THC ratio or anything specific you may have a problem.

Even here in California we can't use outside of our homes! But that does not stop the motivated patient. If you get your meds from a reliable store (not sure what they do in your state), your pharmacist can help you with packaging and edible options. Keep your prescription on you. In any case, don't go out on the street to buy!
