Traveling to Hawaii Just Got Better for Medical Marijuana Users


Medical marijuana users now have added incentive to vacation in Hawaii.

The state just announced that it is allowing visitors who are qualified to receive medical marijuana elsewhere in the U.S. to register and buy it from dispensaries on the islands, according to the Associated Press.

Hawaii’s Department of Health also announced this week that it will launch an online registration system for medical marijuana, allowing qualified patients to easily secure an electronic registration card.

Under the new system, out-of-state visitors can register before arriving in Hawaii ensuring that they can purchase from dispensaries when in the state.

“The introduction of Hawaii’s electronic medical cannabis card is a major step in improving access to medical cannabis for qualified patients in Hawaii and out-of-state patients in the 37 other jurisdictions where medical cannabis is allowed,” Bruce Anderson, director of the state Department of Health, said according to the Associated Press.

Currently, 32 other states, Washington, D.C., and four U.S. territories allow medical marijuana use.

There will be a $49.50 application fee to register in Hawaii as an out-of-state patient. Applications can be submitted up to 60 days before visiting the islands.
