In Hawaii, medical marijuana is free!
Our precious system of caring for Hawaii's medical marijuana patients by allowing caregivers to voluntarily grow for them was established in 2000, when the Hawaii Legislature passed landmark medical marijuana laws. Today, approximately 3,000 good-hearted caregivers volunteer their time, and expertise, to grow cannabis for Hawaii's seriously ill registered medical marijuana patients.
This system is filled with "Aloha." Caregivers are usually a friend or a family member, which often spend years developing just the right strains of cannabis, and processes, to create a medicine that is tailor-made to the patient's needs.
Unfortunately, Hawaii lawmakers have passed laws that will stop most caregivers from helping patients in December of 2018. Patients will be forced to buy at the soon-to-open dispensaries, or buy from the black market. This is a cruel hardship for seriously ill folks, because it will add a financial burden they may not be able to bare. Dispensaries may not carry the strains, or products, that patients rely on.
Be Smart, Be Safe, and BE in COMPLIANCE!
Medical marijuana is legal in Hawaii, if you have a "329 card" and remain in compliance with Hawaii's medical marijuana laws.
Registered medical marijuana patients, or their caregiver, may grow up to 7 plants, and possess up to four ounces of marijuana.
A registered marijuana patient, or caregiver, MUST place an identification tag that CLEARLY shows their 329 registration number, and expiration date, on each of their medical marijuana plants. Click here for the DOH's tagging guidelines.
WARNING: Untagged marijuana plants or improperly tagged marijuana plants are subject to confiscation by law enforcement, and the grower, or property owner, may not be guaranteed the protections available in chapter 329, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
Read the HI Health Dept rules.
Know your rights when GREEN HARVEST shows up

A majority of Hawaii's citizens support legalization
The Hawaii Legislature Congratulates PWT
The 2009 Hawai'i State House of Representatives congratulated PWT for helping Maui's medical marijuana patients:
The STATE OF HAWAII issued a certification to PATIENTS WITHOUT TIME thanking PWT "for assisting over a thousand of Hawai'i's certified medical marijuana patients with the acquisition of their medical marijuana."
Another heart-warming medical marijuana victory! Mykayla's message to the world is to "Legalize home grow. Plant the seed. Peace."
This is the same aloha-spirit that animates Hawaii's "free medical marijuana" patient and caregiver system. In Hawaii registered patients may grow their own marijuana, but often seriously ill patients cannot grow their own. That's when caregivers voluntarily step in, to help out.
Patients receive their medical marijuana for free, and caregivers receive the priceless reward of watching the relief on patient's faces.
Please, help Restore Hawaii's Caregivers.
"It’s time to tax it (marijuana), regulate it, make the money off of it. Quit letting the illegal drug dealers make the money and make the money for us, for the farmer.” ~ Willie Nelson, April, 2010
Most caregivers will no longer be allowed after December 2018.
