HI Marijuana Card

Updated on May 13, 2021.  Medical content reviewed by Dr. Joseph Rosado, MD, M.B.A, Chief Medical Officer

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.

Benefits of the Marijuana Card in Hawaii

A licensed doctor can help you get a medical marijuana card easily. Below are some benefits of obtaining your Hawaii marijuana card:

  • Full Legal Protection – Getting full legal protection under the state’s medical marijuana laws is undoubtedly one of the most advantageous benefits of being a card-carrying MMJ patient. With a legal card in your hand, you’ll be free of the nagging fear of being penalized for possessing cannabis. The law will be on your side and will make sure your medicine is not confiscated.
  • Ticket to Marijuana Dispensaries With your medical marijuana card, you’ll have legal access to any of the medical marijuana dispensaries in Hawaii. You’ll also be allowed to frequent cannabis clubs anywhere in the state. Most providers have dozens of cannabis options to choose from, and they’re well-versed in how each strain affects the body.
  • Grow Your Own Medicine – Both the patients and caregivers can grow their own cannabis once they have a medical marijuana card. Though there is a limit on the number of mature plants one can grow at a time, you’ll be free to grow your own pot. Cultivating your own medicine will also save a lot of money in the long run.
