Hawaii Marijuana Laws

Though Hawaii marijuana laws designate marijuana as a Schedule I hallucinogenic substance, Hawaii has legalized it's use for medical purposes allowing patients to grow 3 plants. If you do not have a medical card and are caught with marijuana, you could face some harsh disciplinary action.

  • Possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana is a petty misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days imprisonment and/or a fine of $1,000. Adversely, possession of 1 ounce or more, but less than 1 lb is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 1 year imprisonment and/or a $2,000 fine.
