Under Hawaii medical marijuana law, qualifying patients must register with and obtain a registration certificate (sometimes referred to as a medical marijuana card, cannabis card, or pot card) from the Hawaii Department of Health’s Medical Cannabis Program — a division of Hawaii’s Department of Safety. The registration certificate is valid for one year, and qualifying patients are required to report changes in information, to the Department, within five business days.
Though marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 drug by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, it has many therapeutic effects in various situations and conditions. Like all legal states, Hawaii requires patients to be evaluated by a medical practitioner before applying for a marijuana card. Once approved, patients can purchase medicine from a local dispensary. In Hawaii, a medical marijuana card is required to ensure patients aren’t arrested for possessing cannabis.
