Tourists Can Legally Smoke Marijuana in Hawai’i Now

Tourists Can Legally Smoke Marijuana in Hawai’i Now
Meg Butler

Right on the heels of Southwest’s new $49 flights to Hawai’i, The Aloha State just got another new draw: medical marijuana for tourists.

Here’s how it works: Visitors to Hawai’i can “participate in the islands’ world-class medical cannabis program for 60 days by applying online for a 329-V medical marijuana card.

For those of you who aren’t up-to-date on Hawai’i’s cannabis news, the state’s first state-licensed medical cannabis dispensaries opened during the summer of 2017 for residents. In 2018, the 329-V card made access to those dispensaries open to visitors to the state and it would make it legal for them to possess marijuana in the state for up to 60 days at a time.

How does it work? Well, to be eligible, you have to have a medical marijuana card in your own state (a process that’s becoming increasingly simplified as more states opt for legalization) for one of the conditions authorized in Hawai’i to be treated by medical marijuana which include nausea, “chronic pain as defined by your health care provider,” glaucoma, rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions.

Once you are eligible, you can go online to fill out a 10-minute online survey with the Department of Health up to 60 days in advance of your vacation’s start date (and set a start date for your temporary 329-V medical marijuana card that coincides with your arrival).

The fee is $49.50 and, according to the Marijuana Hawai’i website, applications are typically approved in 3-5 business days.

    Perhaps the bigger question is can you (legally) import and/or export “the weed with roots in hell” to your home state if weed is permitted there. Simply put, if I would like to bring some “Maui Wowee™” back on the plane to my home in CA, for personal use. Is this legal?

    Time for more Maui Wow-ie!!! I can see Hawaii marketing to post-chemo and terminal cancer patients to spend their days recovering or their final days in paradise.
