Our legislature passed a resolution to explore how Hawai`i could set up a statewide dispensary system for medical marijuana patients.
When Kat was in California recently, she had the opportunity to visit 2 well-run dispensaries and my report of those visits is below. First, an announcement of an event tomorrow at the Blaisdell. If this topic is ofinterest to you, I urge you to attend to get some real information. The flyer for the event is here.
