Hawaii’s medical marijuana law allows the Department of Health to grant, initially, just eight licenses. The City and County of Honolulu will get three, Hawaii and Maui counties will get two, and Kaua’i County will receive one.

Once approved, those awarded a dispensary license will be able to run no more than two production facilities and two retail locations. The Department of Health said that it expects to announce those chosen for licensing by April 15th 2016. Dispensaries are expected to open in mid-July.
