Be A Good Neighbor!

Medical Cannabis impacts more than just patients in the state of Hawaii. Everyone has a part to play and the Department of Health encourages registered patients to be mindful of how their use of cannabis may impact others around them.

It’s NOT okay to drive a motor vehicle when under the influence of medical cannabis.
