The Hawaii Senate has approved a bill to establish a system of medical marijuana dispensaries nearly 15 years after the drug became legal in the state.
The Senate passed the bill Tuesday. The next step is for senators and their colleagues in the House to work out their disagreements on how it should work.
There are about 13,000 patients who use the drug in Hawaii. They’re generally left to buy it on the black market or grow it on their own.
The current bill would allow up to one dispensary license to be granted in each county. Each license would cover up to one cultivation site and two dispensing locations.
The medical marijuana dispensaries bill is one of dozens of proposals the Hawaii Legislature is passing ahead of a deadline.
