NORML.ORG – Hawaii: Senate Passes Multiple Marijuana Reform Measures

Honolulu, HI: Senate lawmakers this week approved a series of legislative proposals aimed at amending the state’s marijuana laws. Legislators unanimously approved SB 1460 , which reduces the adult possession of up to one ounce of marijuana from a criminal misdemeanor (punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a $1,000 fine) to a civil violation punishable by a fine of not more than $100. Regarding the medical use of marijuana, the Senate approved SB 1458 , which allows for the state licensed production and distribution of medical cannabis and cannabis-infused therapeutic products. Senators also passed SB 58 , which increases the quantity of marijuana that authorized patients may legally possess under state law. Two other related measures, SB 175 and SB 113 , also met with Senate approval. All five measures now go before House lawmakers. Last year, Senate lawmakers approved several similar proposals – all of which eventually stalled in the House.
