Medical Marijuana in Hawaii

On June 14, 2000, Hawaii's Governor Ben Cayetano signed Senate Bill 862 into law and it became effective on December 28, 2000.  This law removed Hawaii state-level criminal penalties for the possession, use and cultivation of marijuana by Patients who have a signed statement from their doctor stating that he or she has been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition and that the "potential benefits of medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the health risks."
