Medical cannabis patients in Hawaii offered 2-year renewal

WAILUKU — Hawaii residents have been offered two-year renewals of their medical cannabis certification cards.

The Maui News reported Wednesday that the Hawaii Department of Health will allow the renewals beginning Thursday.

Officials say current medical cannabis cardholders can submit their two-year renewal applications through an online registration system.

Applicants must have a qualifying debilitating medical condition that is chronic and verified by a physician or advanced practice registered nurse.

Officials say patients must renew with the physician or nurse who issued a certification in a previous year.

The issuing medical professional must agree that a two-year renewal is in the best interest of the patient.

Registered patients may submit renewal applications online 60 days before their cards expire.

Officials say registration fees are nonrefundable regardless of an application’s outcome.
