Hawaii Senate Passes Bill to Legalize Recreational Marijuana - The Marijuana Herald
A bill to make Hawaii the next state to legalize recreational marijuana has been passed by the state's Senate.
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.
