Marijuana is Medicine!
Legalize, Tax, and Regulate Hawai'i's marijuana industry.
CALL TO ACTION! Ask Gov. Ige to VETO HB 321, the medical marijuana Dispensary (Monopoly) bill because it places millions of dollars of infrastructure cost, taxes, and fees on Hawai'i's 13,000 seriously ill medical marijuana patients.
Meanwhile 170,000+ citizens are using recreational marijuana purchased from the "black market," which the government completely ignores.There has not been any task force report on the commercial marijuana growers. Who supplies the 170,000+ citizens that consume recreational marijuana, and who sells to the 800,000 tourists a year who buy recreational marijuana while visiting Hawaii? Why is marijuana readily available everywhere in Hawaii?
How many tons of marijuana are shipped out of Hawaii every year? Hawaii’s recreational marijuana products are world famous. Estimates are hard to come by because the Hawaii government has not done any studies. It is certainly a billion dollar a year industry.
Everyone knows this zillion-dollar market is ripe for the picking. Will Hawaii have mega-dispensaries, with million-dollar-a-year CEO’s, or will we have thousands of small organic family farms, which supplement their vegetable sales with sales of marijuana? HB 321 is not about the 13,000 seriously ill patients (who have to pay for all this), it’s about the future of the commercial marijuana market.
Thousands of small entrepreneurs could create gourmet marijuana products, like Hawaii's microbreweries create specialty beer, wines, and spirits. They are local business success stories. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. Legalize, tax and regulate marijuana, and end the black market now.
HB 321 and the other dispensary bills take Hawaii down the wrong pathway of mega-corporation control, and violation of patient’s rights. Please OPPOSE HB 321, and all Dispensary bills today!
Let's work together to create a self-sustainable Organic Maui!
