Dispensaries Task Force is Kicking into High Gear

taskforceMany of you likely know about the dispensaries task force resolution that was passed during the 2014 legislative session. This task force will propose legislation to create a system of dispensaries that suits the needs of Hawaii’s medical cannabis patients. The task force just had its first meeting, and this has spawned a slew of positive mentions in the media.

Here is an excellent segment highlighting the need for dispensaries from KITV.

Here is a segment from HPR2, featuring Peter Whiticar from the Department of Health explaining how the current system works and why a dispensary system is urgently needed and long overdue.

Finally, this story from the Star Advertiser features interviews with several members of the task force including Peter Whiticar and patient Karl Malivuk.

It is excellent to watch, hear, and read stories that place the need for marijuana dispensaries in a context of compassion and open-mindedness. I hope that the recommendations of the task force will be greeted with the same level of discourse that the task force itself has been.
