The LegalTint™ program, which offers free legal services to legal marijuana users in Hawaii, has opened its doors to all applicants.
Applicants will be able to receive a personal medical marijuana card, which can be used to access various services, such as counseling, education, and transportation, according to a press release.
The program, the third in the U.S. to offer such services to patients, was created by the U of M’s LegalTints program, according the press release, which was written by the Hawaii Department of Health.
The law passed last year makes the state the first in the nation to allow patients to obtain a medical marijuana license and has given the state a boost in economic growth.
In 2016, Hawaii ranked sixth in the country in economic development.
The Hawaii Department is also in the process of issuing an initial batch of licenses to new medical marijuana patients and will soon start the process to issue more.
The state is also currently accepting applications for the new state’s medical marijuana program, and the next batch of patients will be available to sign up by June 1.
