Medical Marijuana LegalityOn June 14, 2000, Governor Ben Cayetano signed Senate Bill 862, which established the Hawaii Medical Marijuana Act to remove state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of medical marijuana (also referred to as medical weed, medical pot or medical cannabis) by patients who possess a written certification/medical marijuana recommendation from their physician. Qualifying patients must register with the Narcotics Enforcement Division (NED). Patients or their caregivers may possess up to 3 ounces of usable marijuana, and may cultivate up to seven marijuana plants, three of which may be mature.
