If passed into law, those 21 and older would be allowed to possess up to 30 grams of marijuana and cultivate up to six marijuana plants (three of which could be mature). An independent Hawaii Cannabis Regulatory Authority would be established under the Department of Health to regulate the industry and licensed marijuana retail outlets.

Marijuana products would be subject to a 10% tax, with revenue going to the state treasury. Marijuana outlets would be allowed to deduct businesses expenses as part of the state income tax.

I wouldn't get too excited.

Bills like this pass state houses and senates all the time. Normally, it's planned politics: a senate will pass something and the house will shoot it down or vice versa.

It's just done to make it look like they're trying to do what the people want, but they have no real intention of doing it.
