Hawaii 329 Card Rules And Laws
If you‘re a medical marijuana cardholder in the state of Hawaii, then it‘s important that you understand the rules and laws governing your use of cannabis. Hawaii is one of 33 states which has legalized medicinal marijuana for qualified patients, and understanding the ins–and–outs of its regulations can help ensure that you remain compliant with all applicable local laws. The Hawaiian government operates a unique system for registration in its medical cannabis program known as the 329 card — essentially medical marijuana cards issued by their Department Of Health (DOH) to eligible individuals who will be using marijuana for approved therapeutic purposes. To obtain such certification, any patient must have legal documentation from an MD stating a diagnosis or condition(s) qualifying them to use medical marijuana under Hawaiian law.
Some Important 329 Card Rules And Laws:
- One caregiver per patient; one patient per caregiver.
- One grow site per registered patient.
- No more than 10 cannabis plants, jointly between a registered patient and caregiver (ALL plants must be tagged).
- No more than 4 ounces of usable cannabis, jointly between a registered patient and caregiver.
- Do not use medical cannabis in a way that endangers the health or well-being of another person.
- Do not use medical cannabis for purposes other than medical use as permitted by law.
- Do not use medical cannabis in any moving vehicle, at any work place, on any school grounds, or in any other public place (including public parks, beaches, recreation centers).
- Put a tag or other identification maker with the 329 Card Number AND Expiration Date at the base of every medical cannabis plant so they can be more easily identified as legal. In the recently approved DOH Administrative Rules, “the person who has been designated to cultivate cannabis shall have a legible identification tag on each cannabis plant being cultivated for the qualifying patient”.
